We love anything lace and gilded.
Surrounding ourselves with abundant of flowers.
A girl can never have too many fancy chairs.
Why should we wait for special occasions to get all dolled up? Shouldn't we celebrate everyday?
A romantic swing to takes us to far away places... then there are times when I find myself constantly falling in love with leather chairs. You know the really beat up masculine ones? I love them. I wasn't sure if a chair like that would ever really fit into our decor. Luckily I got a chance to find out when the owner of our favorite coffee shop asked me if I could reupholster one of their chairs. Now when I tell you this chair was in bad shape...I mean the fabric was literally disintegrating. I wish I took a before picture but as usual I got too excited and went to town on the chair. Here is the chair after I stripped it.
First I thought I would do my usual velvet and paint the wood lighter color but decided it would make no sense for me to use that kind of fabric for a coffee house. So I decided to go with a really nice vinyl that has a nice leather feel and very durable. Speaking of leather, what is your take on it? Do you ladies like leather chairs?? First of, it is ridiculously expensive at almost $300 a hide and I would need about three hides to recover a nice wing back. B has been wanting a nice leather chair of his own in our over the top feminine home. I thought it would be nice to make him a leather wing back but at over a grand for one chair??? I don't know about that. I told him if I ever make him one, it is his only for the duration of our relationship. : ) Here the chair after it is all done up.
I think it fits right in, don't you think? I like the idea of putting on my make up in a leather chair like a BOSS.
I decided to upholster the back and the bottom with coffee bags.
I am not going to lie. I kind of felt sad when I had to drop it off at the coffee house.
At least I got to enjoy it for one morning.
Now I just need to add a nice leather wing back to my list of chairs to do. I will get to it one of these days.
