London Tube Chair

Just finished this little project!  I am kicking myself for not taking a "before" shot--it was painted with some really ugly designs, but I loved all the curves and detail and knew it had potential.  The seat was the time-consuming part.  I enlarged the names of some London Tube stops with the little projector, traced over them, traced them onto clear plastic which I then cut out to make a stencil (yes, time-consuming).  Then I stenciled them onto black cotton duck fabric.

Unless I decide to keep it, this will be headed down to Liberty House.  I'll be posting photos of some other recently finished projects soon (though I'm still have troubling uploading photos!).

Thanks to Hobbin for sending this chair my way!
