|Designer Maggie Martell's chair...our inspiration|
One of the interior decorators there, Maggie Martell, told us how she had copied the chair (she found her "before" chair by the side of the road) from one she saw in a high-end catalogue for $1199.00 + shipping. Maggie is very talented and was wonderful about sharing tips with Joanne and I.

Time for the trusty glue gun again...that and a bag of polyester fiberfill evened out the surface. After that, we covered both seat and back with two layers of quilt batting, and finally, the orange fabric.
Have the glue gun ready!
I'm linking this post to more parties than usual for two reasons: 1) Cause I love how our chair came out, and 2) Joanne and I earned one link for each nasty hot glue burn we endured finishing this project!
