On the Workbench…

Just a quick note to share this fabulous fabric with you!

Love this linen — it has a fabulous hand — adorned with a fabulous peacock and blowsy, salmon pink and deep red flowers.

It is going on the seat of this cool cane-backed vintage chair with two tones of Cottage Paint, Bimini and Slate, and a metallic gold highlight wax, as well as a natural beeswax.

More on the process later, but thought you’d like this breath of fresh air! Feels like Spring!

    What came first? The fabric or the paint job. I’m usually not a fan of the big blown up bird print, but paired with the colors on the chair it will look spectacular.

      Thanks Marsha! Paint came first, in the Plaster Center of Minneapolis Institute of Fine Finishes! So nice to not be painting in the dining room this winter! The fabric has yet to be attached. I know what you mean about the bird, but this print is beautiful in person! I’ll be posting later on the process with the Cottage Paint!

    Cant wait to see how this project turns out for you Kim.
    I love cane chairs.I have missed reading your blog and the JB updates and just catching up. Finally started my own Etsy page and it is keeping me busy.
    Hope to see you at the April JB.

      The Spring Junk Bonanza will rock! Looking forward to seeing you there!
      This chair should be ready for the Paris Market starting Friday at Piccadilly Prairie in SW Minneapolis! I need to get more staples before I can finish the upholstery!

    Where did you get that fabulous fabric? I love it!

    • Kim Yeager says:

      It is a Calico Corners fabric, the name of which escapes me and I’ve used every last scrap of it. But it is the only one they are sampling currently with a big peacock on it!

      I currently have in stock
      a second boudoir chair, smaller and shield-backed, and a fabric bulletin board, done in this fabric. Also a canvas pillow with a contrasting band of the flowers from the peacock print.
