Feed sacks and vintage fabric

These are old bergere chairs with the monograms on the front and the detail of the fabric on the back, seat and arms. Notice the double welt for extra detail.  You need a really good upholsterer for these kinds of chairs or they will look really sloppy.
I usually find my fabric on ebay.  A favorite seller is "Loodylady"  aka Wendy Lewis.  All of her fabric is in excellent condition and she is great to deal with as well.  Definitely a favorite of mine.  Yea Wendy!

These chairs are oversized and finished with white denim, which I never seem to get tired of using.  Each chair has a different monogram on it, one the left and the other on the right so you can see the detail when they are placed facing one another.
What about using this nice fabric for a lamp shade.  The lamps themselves are old ice cream buckets.  Its easy to find two that are somewhat the same on ebay.

So  here is my first post.  I really love vintage fabric and have used it in alot of fun ways.  What do you think of my new creations?
