A Pair Of Vintage French Carved Salon Chairs

32

June 30, 2015 by Terry

11I acquired 2 of these lovely chairs off of a local classified add site for an amazing price!!!

This is how it looked before:IMG_6810So there was really nothing wrong with the upholstery … it didn’t smell, wasn’t dirty and it wasn’t faded in any area of the fabric … even the underside of the cushion is consistent in color.

The only problem with it was that it was the wrong color and material.  I’m really not a pink person when it comes to furniture and I don’t really care for velvet.   Pretty as it was … it just didn’t go with my decor.  It needed to be a little less feminine.

I took it apart and re upholstered it to suit my own tastes.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had a down filled cushion :0)

    i have a chair very similar that I want to recover just like yours! I am a beginner though so I’m nervous to start. Do you have a tutorial?

    • Hi Shona! Unfortunately I have been a bit of a lazy blogger lately and I didn’t take pictures of the whole process during this one. I do have it’s twin to do yet so maybe I will make that one as a tutorial :0) ! Hopefully you can wait until then, if not you can also visit Miss Mustard Seed’s blog and she has some upholstering tutorials there. I tend to just take my furniture apart now and just “wing” it. I’ll share that process with you soon.
      Thank you for the visit and the request :0)

      Smiles!

  4. Totally doesn’t suit my house and I don’t have room either, but I WANT THEM SO BADLY. Gorgeous. Really consider coming to help me reupholster my front patio SIT chair and we can both post about it. Tempting, no? (the pics are stunning too. Nice work!)

    Terry, your chair is gorgeous! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! The wood, the grain sack, the down filled cushion, truly amazing, and you did a great job. I’ve been looking for a pair of french chairs for years, but they’re pretty hard to come by at a decent price in Alaska. So, I’ll keep drooling over yours. Can’t wait to see the finished set!

      Thank you so much for your kind compliments! Maybe you should come out this way for a holiday and do a little “shopping” on the way, you might come across a pair to take home as souveniers :0) ha ha!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
