Furniture Transformations for Staging

I'm always on the lookout for great accent chairs to add to rooms that I am staging.  Sometimes I find a furniture piece with good bones...

and a great price.

When I first spotted this chair at a sale, I had to buy it - even though it was ripped and torn and in desperate need of a makeover.

After a visit to the fabric store for some new upholstery fabric, I began the tedious (but so worth it) work of removing the old material.

Then, after I painted the frame, I got busy adding layer after layer of new upholstery fabric.  

Many hours later, the chair was transformed.

I found a spot for the chair right away in a home I was staging.

Can you spot the chair?  It's perfect in this bedroom, right?
