I wanted something special to perch on while selling my fantasy costume items while dressed up in my fairy finest. This may be the closest I’ve ever had a final project come to the original concept sketch! It’s extra sturdy with galvanized steel pipes for the mushroom and flower stems and hardwood discs for the chair base and seat. I love how the upholstery fabric that I used to cover the cushion with formed little pleats on the underside that look just like the gills on a mushroom! This was such a fun project and I’m hoping to offer chairs like it in my etsy store as well as at my festival merchant booth.
