Tassel Butterfly Chair

Thank you for all of the kind comments about this One Room Challenge space!!  (If you missed the full reveal, you can find it here.)  We had a bit of accent chair drama...  Three choices were backordered after the orders were placed and the fourth option arrived but unfortunately was just not right.  With a week to spare, my clients had expressed interest in a butterfly chair.  

When sourcing the chair I was looking for two important factors: 1. Something in a warm leather 2.  Price.  Some were gorgeous, but a little outrageous for what it is... and some were a little too college dorm room.  Wanting some detail and depth, I landed on this one from Wayfair.  And with free shipping and a price tag of only $104, it was a definite yes.

It arrived the day before I took my pictures, so it was cutting it close!!  Once in the space, I knew the leather was just what the space needed but had an idea to personalize it a bit more.  I ran to the local craft store after styling the space and picked up four bolts of black suede cording.  And a mini glue gun... I got back to the house and began making tassels.  

I am no stranger to tassels, and use them frequently.  I even did a research paper on them in college, for real.  So I whipped up four 8"tassels using this tutorial I shared a few years back and held them up to the chair.  Yep, just what this chair needed!

To attach them, I choose to use hot glue... The leather flaps on these chairs is super thick, and rigid.  I knew that the heat of the hot glue wouldn't affect the leather at this thickness.  And as they are placed in the corners, they will not get a lot of abuse.  

I was so pleased with the result and think the chair was taken to an elevated level.  A little more luxe.  

Next week I will be sharing more info about that striped Butler's Tray!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
