Vintage Drexel Chairs Makeover

I came across two fabulous chairs and the ideas started flowing.  They have a very retro design... straight lines and very clean.  They would look so wonderful painted a bright red and covered with playful fabric.  BUT, the wood is soooo beautiful... I couldn't do it!

I went all over the place looking for the perfect fabric.  At first I purchased some cream colored fabric with a simple raised design.  It just didn't "do it" for me though.  Then I found IT!  A turquoise blue and off white fabric that looked retro, but still modern.  I've only covered one chair so far... I'll see what everyone thinks before I do the other.
