1920’s Romance| A Pair of Chairs…


June 16, 2015 by Terry

1920's chair 5Remember the 1920’s China Cabinet?

Well… it came with a VERY damaged table and 6 beautiful chairs.

Unfortunately, out of the six only two were in good shape.  The rest were missing parts of the backs or the bases of each chair. The parts of each chair that might be salvageable may be used to build one or two more only…  so sad as these are really very lovely in detail.

I decided that the two that were in nice shape should be given a new look … a romantic shabby look…

  3. […] condition.  The chairs were wobbly and missing some of the support pieces.  I was able to save 2 of the chairs and give them a bit of a new […]
