3621  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / That Old Leopard Chair on: August 28, 2009 12:34:01 PM
When I saw this post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319003.0) on the same day I got a job to paint a beauty salon door with zebra stripes with a hot pink frame and lettering I remembered an project I did about 7 years ago.  I can't find the before photos, but these chairs (2) had about 3 layers of paint and no upholstery, although there was evidence that they had at one time had an upholstered seat.

Front & back:
 

Why the photos are taken in 2 locations?  I don't remember.

Yowza!  That's quite a makeover and so great that you were able to bring it back to blah when you moved AND take some of the cool stuff with you.  Strange coincidence: I was just today hired to paint a door with black and white zebra stripes and then trim it out and letter in hot pink!  Spooky!

Thanks! That IS weird that you were hired to paint the same theme! What a fun job though.  I tell ya, there is nothing more fun than living with zebra stripes! Maybe that's why they are so popular.

It's for a beauty parlor, and will hopefully set the fun tone they're going for.  It's not my normal thing, so it should be a fun little project!  Mostly I've done leopard spots...

Oh my gosh this is great! I really should make one for my parents' dog  Cheesy

Well, thank you!  Please show us if you do!

I got an inch and a 1/2 inch, if there had been a 2 inch I would have got that too..lol..My excuse is that I might never be in a joannes ever again (well at least for a couple of years) and I might really really need a tape maker...or punch needle embroidery thingy..or yards of fabric..or stacks of paper...or a quilting ruler...or stamps..or a stamp block....or or....lol..you get the idea..

It is just as well we are leaving soon or it would be cold cereal for dinner for a month Wink

Ha! I wonder if the JoAnn's in Florida are different than the ones in Oregon, because I'm generally disappointed when I go there.  Not that I don't use that 40% off coupon even just to get a skein of glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss.  Wink

Who would have time to eat with all that crafting going on? Roll Eyes

Cold cereal is one of my favorites!  It's so QUICK!  Wink

I blame you Mistress T, I am on vacation in orlando at home and have been worshipping at the temple that is Joannes, as I am wont to complain...frequently...we dont have any shops like that at home (ireland)...I have been there a few times already on my visit..bought $$$ of fabric and paper and just plain stuff that I clearly couldnt live without a moment more...

I wasnt going back again (we go home on saturday)

but after this thread I had to go back and buy a bias maker...I left the shop (another) $60 lighter...with not just one but two tape makers, more paper, stamps, glitter etc etc...

If you need someone to blame, I'll do it.  I'm about as far away as one can be from Orlando and still be in the continental US so I feel safe from any retribution you or your family might perpetrate upon me.  I so badly want the 2" maker, but can't (yet) justify the expense.  Plus I've only once seen one in a brick and mortar store.

Here is another tutorial for making bias tape, I haven't tried it yet.

That's a clever solution! Thanks for sharing that link!

I know a quilter that would love thes tapes

Thanks!  It's strange considering what I know now, but using them for quilting didn't occur to me until after people replied to this topic.  Duh, T!

Thank you!  And the cute pets thank you for the "awwwww"!  You got yourself a handsome one in your avatar, so I know you recognize a good lookin fur-friend when you see one.

That's very impressive - that's great commitment doing bias binding on those holes.  The tidiest dog blanket I've ever seen  Smiley

Thank you. Had I thought it through I may have just gone with grommets, but I didn't.  I do think that the bias-bound holes will be more durable than grommets in that the fabric may tear away from the metall pretty quickly.  Now that I think of it, button holes may have worked great.  Hmmmm.

This is nothing short of incredible! The craftsmanship is second to none, and clearly the pooch gives it an A+. Smiley

Rockin'!

Aw, shucks Helen!  Let's all not look closely at the bias binding on the back side of the blanket.   Roll Eyes

That's fantastic!
You did an amazing job Cheesy

Wow!  Thanks!
