Before & After: Repurposed Chairs

 

First of all, thank you so much for all of your comments and emails regarding Monday's post, "My Biggest Project Yet"... In all, I received almost 100 comments and emails! I have the best readers!!  

Do you remember the client that I spoke of a few months ago that lives in this amazing home...

....and came up with this creative way to display her and her husband's collection of matchbooks from all of their Worldly travels...

Well, several months ago, we decided to have her Grandmother's chairs recovered so that they could be used in their new living room design. The size and shape of the chairs was perfect...but the fabric was dated and worn.

To achieve a more modern, classic feel, and to create contrast with their existing sofa, we selected an ivory upholstery.... Here are the chairs after being recovered...

I love the contrast between the fabric and the wood detail on the chairs... gorgeous! A brand new look for a fraction of the cost of buying brand new chairs!

Do you have a piece that you've recently repurposed? I'd love to hear about it!
