The cushions were already recovered in some durable, yet tasteless, denim. Not my style. It was nice to have the recovers, though, to act as a template for the re-recovers. I simply used a seam ripper to open them up then spread them out on the new fabric.
I love the colors and swirls in this fabric...which was also on the clearance rack. Not bad for $9! And there are a few remnant pieces left over which I'm already brainstorming what to do with them.
I'm still getting to know my sewing machine so I tried a decorative stitch on the hem of the pocket-style flap on the back.
Now I need some help with the last part of this project. What color should I paint the rocking chair frame? I'm on the fence between a creme color or a chocolate brown. Both will be a homemade chalk paint followed by a sealer. And either would match the decor in our home. What do you think?
What color of paint would look better with this fabric? Creme or chocolate brown?
