Because it was a toile pattern I had to make sure that the scene was centered in the middle of the seat which in and of itself didn't present any problems. But in trying to make sure that the pattern was perfectly centered (I'm a perfectionist) I neglected to make sure the pattern was turned so the scene could be seen from the front of the chair instead of from behind. Needless to say, once recovered and I had a chance to look at it, I asked my husband if the pattern should be turned so as to see the scene when looking directly in front of the chair instead of from behind? Being a man he said he thought you could do it either way. But I knew something was amiss and decided to contact my dear friend Fifi of the blogs Fifi Flowers(HERE) and Reading Is Fashionable(HERE) by sending her a picture of my chair and asking her what she thought. She sent a message asking me if there was any reason why I reversed the pattern? HA HA HA Not wanting to offend me she said it looked nice. In any event, I had to do it twice. So, a job that should have taken about an hour or so turned into a two hour project. LOL LOL Live and learn and you can bet your bottom dollar I won't make this mistake again. Take a peek at the results.
This is what the chair looked like:

It took us one hour to remove all of the staples from the seat of this chair.
