NEW LIFE FOR A PAIR OF LOUIS CHAIRS

June 19, 2014

About 6 months ago, I found a pair of Louis chairs on KSL (local classifieds) for a real steal– $30 for both.  I snatched them up and trucked them home.  And then they took up residence in what my husband lovingly refers to as the furniture graveyard, the collection of furniture and antique finds awaiting resurrection in our third car garage.

The fabric and finish were less than desirable, but the chairs were solidly built and I thought the wood detailing was special.  I couldn’t quite settle on what fabric to use for them.

I found some Waverly Cross Section fabric in the charcoal gray color a while back and had been hanging onto it for the right project.  One day it just clicked– the fabric would be great on those chairs.

I was on the fence with the base finish.  I originally wanted a white washed wood look, or a solid white.  I wasn’t sure the white wash would turn out after a lot of sanding and stripping, so I went with the solid white.  I sent them off to the upholsterer and they just got back last week and they’ve now moved into my bedroom.

There is something special about giving an old piece of furniture a second life.  It’s like it gives a room a little soul.

Speaking of a second life, next week is a big one.  I’m revealing our new master bathroom and boy, I can’t even believe it’s the same room!
