September 8, 2011

from this to that

 This is how it all started...
Two balloon back antique chairs with
tattered needlepoints....
In fact, they are identical chairs,
Just different colored seats.

I love the chairs, but they were dark and dated
and frankly, worn out.
 Each chair seat needlepoint was removed for a project later on.

 One was painted Tiffany Blue and
a topcoat of dark Briwax was used on the
Wood after it was distressed.....
 The seat was covered in an antique English flour sack
I found at the bottom of an auction box I won several
Weeks ago....
 While the other chair was painted my new favorite color....
Peanut Butter.
It was also treated with a coat of wax to darken the
Paint and show off the detailing of the wood.

It was given a new seat of old pillow ticking.....

And this would be my next project for Le' Pre'miere
Oh my.
I'm joining the following parties this week....
