1920’s Romance| A Pair of Chairs…6
June 16, 2015 by Terry
Remember 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.
See the chair by the Christmas tree? It looks amazing in the shadows but in reality it is tattered and upholstered in a 90’s forest green bed sheet… poorly done I might add…
I decided that the two that were in nice shape should be given a new look … a romantic shabby look…
a grain sack striped upholstered seat…
…chippy paint in linen milk paint (Miss Mustard Seed’s Linen Milk Paint) with antiquing wax.
they are now ready to steal the show in the dining room … pair them up with a farm house table and some mismatched antique chairs and you have antique bliss! (don’t forget to throw in a rustic 6 foot dining table with chunky ballister legs! More to come on that…)I love lots of pictures in a post… sorry if it’s overload!
Did I mention I have flowers blooming in my little garden? Some more of my peonies have started to bloom out and my girls all have some fresh blooms to enjoy in their rooms :0)
These two beautiful chairs are currently in my booth at The Old Creamery …
Smiles for a beautiful sunny week!
