Do you love it??? Pink? check. Gold detailing? check. Just look at that frame!
I don't know what year it was made but since I can see where the pieces are connected, I want to say it is more of a vintage than an antique. I am taking it to my upholstery class to get it strip to the frame. I want to modernize it a bit. Here is what I am thinking.
White or beige linen. Old white+gold details.
Or either French linen or Paris Grey. I want to start bringing in more neutral tone to my very gilded decor.
I also picked up a pair of late 1800s Victorian Eastlake parlor chairs. They are beautiful and petite. Do you think chairs are smaller back then because people are generally smaller? It must be their organic diet with no growth hormone. I have an idea of what I want to do with them.
How gorgeous are these? I am pretty sure I will get kick out of my class if I tell them I am going to paint antique Victorian chairs. I am hoping to be able to open an online shop in the fall. Beautiful re imagined mirrors, gorgeous vintage chairs, and whatever else my imagination let me create. I am so happy to have all of you in my life and I can't wait for you to go on this journey with me.
