A New Chiar for Shannon's Mom

Have you ever had a moment of doubt?
well this was one of those times.   My sweet client brought her chair with a lightweight silky fabric that I was sure would not work. After looking at it and thinking about I told her that we needed to find new fabric but not to worry the fabric store would be happy to take it back as long as it was not washed or cut.   NOT true it was on clearance! The store was not taking it back.   Ok well lets just do our best here.   After a lot of prayer and a moment to clear my head I decided to line it with some drapery lining ( because it's was a little thicker then the muslin )

but the fabric was so slippery that I needed to get it to stick a little. This is what I used and it works really well. ( I've used it before on projects with great  results)

 and here is the after

This is a chair that will not be sat in very much so I think it will work just fine   I love the way it looks and the fabric that she chose is just beautiful.

Cydni that looks great. I am about to do some dining chairs out of a slippery fabric and may have to try that.
