The spare bedroom contains an antique cherry wood bedroom set that I inherited from my Grandmother. It originally belonged to her mother. I also inherited a desk and chair. I don't know if the desk and chair were purchased together, I don't think so since they don't really match, but both are pretty old. Okay, sort of old, maybe from the 40's. For some reason my grandmother had upholstered this traditional wood chair, with a carved rose on the back, with this horrible grey vinyl. It was all stiff and cracked with age and has been on the chair for 15+ years. One of the things I decided to do today was re-upholster that chair.
Under the vinyl was this gold fabric. Very stained, may have been pretty when she first put it on.
Under the gold was a very faded tapestry fabric.
You can see the colors better from the back side.
I thought the tapestry was the original chair fabric. It was very nicely upholstered with copper upholstery tacks every 3/4 inch. But when I took it off I found this very thin drab brown fabric.
