This funny thing happened the other day. It seems to occur to a lot of us in the vintage and furniture flipping industry. I finished refreshing a pair of chairs with milk paint, wax and fabric. I posed them at either end of our breakfast table just for a mini before and after shoot before bringing them to the shop. For sale.
Well…I think you know where this is headed. As I snapped pictures to share with you here of the “new” chairs, I was growing more and more fond of them there at the table.
…in our eclectic little nook. Still a work in progress. Always a work in progress really. That is the fun of it naturally because you never know what treasures will find you next.
The grainsack milk painted chairs just seemed so much lighter and brighter in the space than the others we had in there. And yes they match the table anyway!
The streamlined back is pretty comfortable. And the caning allows more light to pass through. It just feels summer-y. We can change out chairs seasonally, right?
For the seats, I used Waverly ticking stripes which plays well off of the grainsack upholstered bench and linen bentwood chairs too.
The walnut & mohair Ward Bennett chairs were looking winter-y there at the table. However, they are my favorite and aren’t leaving the house.
In fact, I carved out a little sitting area in the living room just for these chairs. More pictures on that soon but for now an instagram shot preview…
I certainly have a vintage chair fetish. How about you?
In other vintage chair related news, we’ll be at Clover Market on Sunday in Ardmore, PA.
Perhaps I’ll run into you this weekend!
