Omgosh, I had no idea there were soooo many other chair-fanatics out there!
I’m, obviously, in good company!
(thanks for the many [private] email admissions–I’ll never tell!)
More of [my] Madness!
Two more chairs from that Thrift-wanna-be-Antique store.
This one, $65.
I’m not changing a thing, it just needs a good cleaning. This does not happen very often— Good price, just like it is.
(I feel p-ret-ty blessed when it does!)
And this bergère, $90.
Ideally, I’d like to REdo this one in a linen or hemp—a very soft color. But it won’t be cheap, and I don’t hate it enough to change it right now.
I L O V E bergères!
And all those carvings—omg!
Now that it’s very well cleaned, it’s all growing on me—!
Now, this chair—
I need someone to explain to ME why I love it-?
RED is not my passion, nor is the Art Nouveau or Art Deco style. But this vanity chair—well, it just always makes me smile!
I talked to my upholstery-ladies about recovering it—they shot me down cold. They said I would completely ruin it. –Just refinish and repair the legs.
I’m toying with selling it. Are you interested?
Another thrift store chair! $4.99
I’m crazy about this one!
Except for the legs,
and the fake tapestry,
and the fake leather.
How funny it has a down seat!?
It’s in my queue for upholstery. I already have an incredible golden-beige silk-linen-raffia for the interior, and my mind made up on a fabulous nailhead design (lots to buy–$$ yikes) . . . .
It’s -large- and sits deep. Absolutely perfect for a man. So I like the original upholstery idea, and am hunting for a real, brown leather hide to wrap the outside. And I have some Chippendale, ball & claw legs I will probably switch to!
