The Finished Chair

  1. Place the seat on the chair frame. Line up the screw holes of the seat and chair frame.

  2. Get the screws started, so the seat doesn't fall off once you turn the chair upside down.

  3. Turn the chair over and tighten the screws until the seat is firmly attached. Be careful not to tighten too much; you don't want to strip the holes.

  4. Admire your new chair.

In this case, the simple cotton compliments the oak. The birds in the pattern make it feel earthy rather than prissy, though it’s still a nice contrast to the rather masculine look of the chair. Piping the seat in berry-red boucle grounds the light background of the seat fabric, and adds a nice pop of color.
