Something old is new again

I love taking something old and discarded and giving it new life. My client knew what she had the minute she saw these chairs. Looking a little shabby with old and worn fabric and legs that were a funny yellow color, they had great bones and like my very savvy client, I knew we could turn them into something gorgeous!

What we did:

  • Sent them to a professional furniture painter and had old paint stripped. Painted the trim and legs Benjamin Moore's Silver Satin.
  • Then we ordered fabric: a beautiful teal velvet from Kravet.
  • Sent the chairs to Bahama Upholstery and had them re upholstered keeping the trim and other details identical to the originals.

The result:

Pretty, little, sexy chairs!
