(lol yes that's me in the mirror no makeup & hair a mess :0)
I recently recovered it in this pretty floral
fabric in keeping with the era of the chair with a blue that matched my bed linens. I think it came out okay considering I’m not an upholsterer.
After I was finished I decided I didn’t like
the trim I used around the arms and legs its a little too light don’t you think?
Can you believe I’m sharing something I did not paint? Lol I wouldn’t touch this beautiful carved wood for anything.
The patina is beautiful. Chippy and worn in some areas all the way to the wood where hands have rubbed many, many times over the years.
I keep thinking about all the tales she could tell if only she could talk.
Many a foot has propped on this raised area. I (heart) the detailed carving! Sigh.
Sorry if your heart is fluttering too she’s staying in my bedroom I won’t be selling this one but I'll probably be changing out that trim.
If you look in the first pick above the chair you see this mirror. I found this at a thrift store for $4.00.
It was painted antiqued gold and was a little too gaudy for my taste but it had beautiful rose buds and I could see potential. I simply took some ASCP in “Versailles” and dry brushed it on leaving some of the gold to peek through.
I really like how it turned out and its going to my booth at King’s Antiques tomorrow along with this little metal wall art piece I stained with a brown acrylic then I also dry brushed with Versailles. (Loving me some Versailles and hey I don’t even like green).
Please let me know what you think of my chair I love to hear from ya’ll and I read every comment.
I'm sharing with the following wonderful parties.
