Thanks for all the advice on the chair.  I took it.  And am nearly finished (you can’t see it yet).

I’ve used both the Ralph Lauren linen and the coffee sacks as you all unanimously advised.  And now I’m in a dilemma about the trim….

Where the two fabrics meet are they better left unadorned, or do they look smarter with an antique nail-head trim?  I was sure the trim was going to be the finishing touch, but now I’m not so sure.  I have no idea why I’m so indecisive about this chair!

Recycled grain sack chair without trim

It looks simple without the trim and kind of rustic.  One fabric blends into the next.  Or does it just look unfinished?

The trim really neatens it all up, and has a lovely aged character, but…  Is the trim all too much?
