There. I’ve said it.
It’s a little embarrassing.
I know I don’t have need of One. More. Chair.
And then I find myself loading another beauty into the car.
I’ve thought about this for a while–to reveal my obsession.
Or is it a sickness–?
I’ve collected too many things while back here by family. So, I’m moving into a bigger storage unit. Which highlights the craziness—even to me.
Deep breath. Here goes. Don’t judge me, please.
I found this at the St Vinnie’s ½ price day sale–I paid $4.
I “refreshed” the wood finish, then sent it over to my favorite upholstery-ladies, Katie & Jane, to work their magic! They rebuilt the seat with springs and webbing, and added the nailhead detail for me! I l-o-v-e these ladies!
I found this chair in a Thrift/wanna-be-Antique Store. $40.
It was stained the strangest green and had a floral seat. Omg–Y-u-c-k-! (forgot to take before pic)
I had it stripped, I refinished it, then sent it on to my favorite upholstery-ladies to be recovered in linen–that I first had embroidered with my monogram!
This was only a frame– $65.
I found it at Hunt & Gather, in Minneapolis— you will l-o-v-e this store! There were originally 3 frames, they said. Why would anyone leave just the 1 behind–? But, thank you!
Again–more favorite fabric from back home, and Katie & Jane took care of the whole project for me!
—I had a really cool settee. Stripped it-refinished it-reupholstered it-Quite beautiful!
But, I traded it for ↓this↓—and had to start all over.
Katie and Jane (st)ripped it down to the frame. It was stripped, and I refinished it. Then it went back to the ladies to re-build it and upholster.
“a beautiful white dress
with a green wrap!”
—the cushion is all down!
–If you, too, L-O-V-E chairs–stay tuned.
This is—Part One
(of my OCd)
Please, tell me I’m not alone. . .
