Even though the rooms in my new house are not very big, I think it wouldn't look good if I put in many small pieces of furniture.  When I was playing around with some odd pieces to see what would work, I had also used a half finished chair I started working on about four or five years ago.  I never finished it (see the green chair in my previous post). 



As the green unfinished chair was sitting in the room, I thought its style would actually work very well in the room.  I just needed the finish the arms, put new upholstery on it and make some legs for it.  I love the little casters on the legs!



Here's a little peek at the legs under the skirt.  
The chair isn't quite finished yet, as it really needs some upholstery trim to hide the selvedge of the fabric.  I do like this selvedge with the line and dots (thats why I kept it on show),  but it also has the little holes which you often see on selvedges.

  3. De stoel wordt vast weer een kunststukje, ik vind hem al veel mooier geworden met dit stofje.
    Weet van mijn 1:1 cursus 'stoel bekleden' dat het veel werk is. Dus hoop ook nog eens zo iets in het klein te doen.

  20. Beautiful Josje! You always make wonderful scenes and miniatures.

    Please do consider making a book on your dolls houses/miniatures. Your pictures are great and it would be a real inspiration ( I know someone who would beg for an extra one,nicely paid for, of course)
    Cheers,

  21. Dear Josje,

    Your choice of fabric is as usual, perfect, it complements the other colours in the room beautifully.

    The wreath is lovely too, did you make it yourself?

    Stunning as usual.

  23. De stoel is erg mooi geworden! Ik vind de walnoten vloer echt een plaatje, wat leuk om zulke handige onverwachte kado'tjes te krijgen!
    In het algemeen houd ik helemaal niet van kerst mini's, misschien ook wel omdat ik teveel oncharmante en kitcherige versies heb gezien, maar dit vind ik echt heel mooi! De kleuren zijn wel kerst, maar dan wel heel sophisticated! Het gaatzo te zien een smaakvol en stijlvol geheel worden!

  27. De stoel is weer prachtig geworden, de kleur ook, het benadrukt de sfeer heel goed.
    We zullen niet naar de beurs gaan, ik moet werken.
    Het zal wachten tot maart worden, maar dan ben ik er zeker, ze willen dan mijn werk tentoonstellen.

    Groetjes Sylvia

  28. Ah Josje ... such a beautiful job you've done on this wonderful chair ... one of my favorite styles, and so very English in it's appearance. And, I agree with Elly ... a book of your designs would be such a pleasure!

  29. Wow! What a transformation Josje, the proportions are lovely and the colour beautiful.

  30. Thank you all for your wonderful comments! The chair is not perfect at all, but it looks the part!

    Fiona, yes I did make the wreath a few years ago. I used some natural material ( I think it is called reindeer moss) as the base. It is quite brittle though, I shall have to spray it to preserve it.

    Sylvia, wat geweldig zeg! En spannend voor jou om dat allemaal te laten zien! Maar ik weet zeker dat we het allemaal prachtig zullen vinden. Een enorm leuk vooruitzicht!

  31. I think your chair looks very comfortable and I would just love to waste a day in it with a good book and a warm blanket by the fireplace. Oh, yes, and with a hot cup of tea, please and thank you!
