Back in 2013 I painted and upholstered this late 1800’s chair. Earlier this year I decided to make a seat cover for it using some old leather. Could be my weird fetish for everything black, shiny, leathery and strappy, but I’m completely in love with this chair now.
I only had smaller pieces of leather so I patched up a bunch of them with my sewing machine to make the cover.
I added straps that I tied around the legs of the chair to fasten the cover over the seat.
