I've been using the same desk and chair since I was about 12 years old. The chair has been painted and refinished several times and the fabric over the seat has been changed out many times, over the years. Browsing through a magazine one day, I saw the cutest two-piece "outfit" on a similar chair. I tore out the picture and took it to my friendly upholsterer to copy. Voila! It turned out just like the magazine picture. Then, I took it to a local monogram shop (which has since closed). After extensive explanations and detailed drawings of where the monogram should go, they still got it backwards. Imagine how excited I was when I went to pick it up. And, what did they offer to do? They said if I got another one made, they would monogram it for free. Thanks a lot...
Since the chair sits in a bit of a corner, with its back to the wall, I decided to just live with it for awhile. I still love it though. I think the box-pleated skirt and the tie-on top are so cute.
