Chair makeover

To go with my OOAK Barbie doll for the 2020 GAW Barbie Convention charity auction, I’m making a simple backdrop, as previously shown here. Since the theme of the convention is A Knight to Remember—and I’m making a princess doll—I decided she also needed a throne. I found this vintage doll chair in an antique shop. From my research, I believe the chair was made circa 1910-30, possibly in Germany. The chair was well made, but a little worse for wear. So a makeover was in order.

After some sanding and a couple coats of gold paint, I embellished it with some brass stampings. Then I made cushions covered in royal blue crushed velvet. Here’s the before and after.
