The Chair-a’s Tour Fearless Inspired Chair

When I first laid eyes upon this chair on FB Marketplace, I knew it was the right one for my Fearless-inspired chair.

If you take a look at Fearless Taylor’s Version, it looks like her hair blowing in the wind to the left and her face to the right.

I had to have it, and so I had a shipper pick it up in Oklahoma and bring it here.

Can you see the similarities too?

I got it all stripped down and I prepped with a primer because I knew I was going to use a metallic paint.

I chose this one only because of the shade that I wanted. It needed to be brassy and bright to work with my fabric.

To embellish the chair, I picked up 5 mm rhinestones,E6000 glue, and jewelry tweezers.  I began placing the rhinestones on the flower cut out at the top of the chair. I ended up not using the tweezers on this part because it was easier to just place each one with my fingers.

Next, I jumped into the upholstery. To my surprise, there were many metallic velvets to choose from for fabric. I ended up choosing the Kravet Luxe, which is discontinued but there was stock available and I snatched up a yard!

It’s a super soft upholstery velvet.

It has a shimmer and a nice weight to it. As it was going on the chair, I knew It was the perfect fabric.

Once the upholstery and welt cord trim were on, I went back to embellishing the chair. This time, I used the tweezers and applied it in the grove on the top of the chair. It took several hours.

I felt this was enough to give the extra sparkle without covering the entire chair, which probably would have taken a week! It was a good compromise.

The metallic paint turned out excellent and worked great with the fabric.


Typically, I have the backside of the chair that has something spectacular, but this chair is the opposite.

It’s all on the frontside this time.

To me, this is the perfect Fearless-Inspired chair with the gold and rhinestones as well as this epic chair frame.   To see all my Taylor Swift-inspired chairs, go to this page. I have downloads to show how to make each one.
