Finally, finally had these two chairs recovered!
i need to get Amy from Maison Decor to advice me on the paint finish on this girl, it needs a little work and she knows EVERYTHING about creating a beautiful patina with painted pieces and Annie Sloan paint!
I have had them for years, and i have draped fabric on them...
glued fabric on them...
but never was able to get them recovered
until my friend told me she could have it done for me for around $50.00 each!
i probably wasn't supposed to tell anyone that...ooops
I was like oh heck yeah!
Of course then i had to decide on a fabric to cover them in and not be all indecisive because i wanted to jump on this chance to have them finally done!
Ok, so let's just say, that was the second hurdle.
How does one decide on a fabric when there are 18 gagillion possible fabric combinations to choose from!!!?
I have always loved buffalo gingham check
probably one of my all time favorite dining rooms ever...
from the Cote de Texas blog
wish i could find a less blurry photo
ok, here's a better shot
isn't it just so completely to die for charming!
her using buffalo check again
anyway, i didn't have any taupe buffalo check so i just needed to get over it and move on!
But it just so happened that i had a few scraps of one of my favorite toiles in the world
and a sweet lady i know at the local fabric store got in some linen and saved a little for me...
So that was that
like it or not
i was going with that combination dadgumit!
no more indecision!
and i think they turned out pretty cute...
Maybe one day if i find some great taupe buffalo check fabric,
i can have a big feather stuffed cushion custom make for the seat...
wouldn't that be cool!
(will she ever ever be satisfied!???)
