After

Before

There comes a great satisfaction  when  finding a way to re purpose a well made item.  When I see a great piece, I snatch it up knowing I will find the right home for it once it has been reinvented.  Although this chair would fit in perfectly at Medieval Times Restaurant, it was in serious need of a face lift.

The frame was strong and had beautiful carved detail.  However, the worn out gilding and green velvet straight from a 60’s living room needed to go.  A fresh coat of grey paint and Schumaker’s Chiang Mai Dragon, (one of my  all time favorite fabrics) turned this arm chair into a modern beauty.  Replaced the antiqued brass nail heads with fresh silver ones and Voila!  A star is born.  To finish the space, a tufted garden stool becomes the perfect side table and I threw in an orange hide for a rug to add an unexpected pop of color.

I have yet to meet a piece of furniture that I couldn’t give new life to. Can’t wait to share with you what we’re currently working on…
