Ophelia with Grandma's comfy chair


Made from a House of Miniatures Chippendale Wing Chair kit. I found the instructions for this kit to be well thought out and adequately descriptive. The illustrations were helpful and made putting the chair together relatively simple. I just followed step by step, and the chair came to life. :D

Let's not confuse matters and say it was easy...but simple in the straightforward approach the assembly follows. I did make a few modifications to the directions and I've posted those on my blog.

I think the chair turned out very well and am so pleased with it. I think using patterned fabric helps hide any inconsistencies that the solid blue fabric included with the kit would have accentuated. Interestingly, the black and white photo shown on the instruction sheet shows a similar floral pattern.

I've added one of my white patterned pillows with lace flower detailing. It was the only one I had on hand that coordinated well. A red one might be nice, too.

Considering I didn't think I'd ever end up using this kit (it was included in a lot I bought), I might be inclined to pick up another if I find a good deal. It really is a classic design that can be so many things depending on the fabric. Ophelia loves it.
