... I just can't stop, can I?  Grin I found this one on ebay for only 5 bucks - but it was in a really bad shape. The whole back was broken - but thanks to my husband and a friend, we got it nice, smooth and secure again.

I used this beautiful upholstery-fabric with prints of Marilyn and Audrey - two of my all-time icons. It doesn't really go with the rest of the things I made, which is why it will probably be given away to a friend (or maybe I'll just put it... somewhere.  Grin )

So here we go:





Thanks so much for looking!

You did a great job. I looooove that fabric. I have posters of Marilyn and Audrey in my living room.  Smiley I love the 50's style in everything from home decorating to clothing.

Thanks, you two! And you are absolutely right, Wendiek... but unfortunately my husband disagrees about that  Grin

You're welcome. And it was worth the shot, maybe if he hears more people say that, he will agree   Wink

I'm quite certain that your husband is right and it won't go with your house, so just send it my way, lol.  Seriously, you did a wonderful job on this chair.

@SiFi Mom: Aw, I would have loved giving it to you! But... my husband gave it to his friend who just moved into a new house and fell in love with it. I'm still crying a bit over it.  Grin

@netchez: Thank you so much! Since our new home is nearly finished, I'm starting to look for new projects. There is still more to come Smiley
