Happy Monday! Just a quick post, since I’m working on this when I should be asleep. It is a work night after all. But when an idea hits me, I gotta write it down!
A couple years ago I refinished some chairs for a client, for her dining area. Originally, she purchased two bentwood chairs. I had painted them white and recovered the seats in a bold suzani print. The bentwood chairs looked great in white. I wish I had more of them!
After a couple weeks, my client contacted me asking if I had more chairs and more of the same fabric. I didn’t have either…but I searched around kijiji and fabric.com. I was able to find two chairs. They weren’t bentwood but they had a feminine feel to them. As for fabric, I lucked out and found a similar print in the same colours. The two new chairs, I painted white and recovered the seats.
The chairs may not match exactly, but keeping the paint and fabric colours the same, connects them. I just loved the four chairs and wish I had been able to take a picture of them together.
Another lesson learned as a new blogger: take pictures of everything!
Thanks for stopping in! Til next time!
