This is what I started with. Great style and a wonderful price, but boy they are pretty ugly right now.
Frames with 1st coat of poly on them.
Remember how these started out. With those weird orange/blonde colored frames.
This shows the color of the stain. I really like how it turned out. The frames look aged with how the wood took the stain differently in certain spots.
They've been sanded and gone over with steel wool and now have the 2nd coat of poly on them. I am saying at this point they are done - done - done.
My game plan is musical chairs. I am going to use these 4 ladder-back side chairs in the breakfast area and use the two upholstered ones here with the two ladder-back arm chairs. We'll see how that goes. I may recover the seats of the arm chairs.
I showed you these chairs that I was using as inspiration. Now I just need to figure out what fabric I want to use and how I want mine to look.
This is absolutely gorgeous.
Ok, I've definitely decided that I want to do mine in a two fabrics. The seat and front of the chair in an ivory and the back in something with a pattern.
This is one possibility. It matches the seats of the ladderback armchairs.
Since my dining room and living room are all one long space, I want them to be eye catching but still go with anything. So I need to think about this for a minute.
I've ordered one more fabric to check out, so stay tuned. We'll see how this goes.
Be sure to get all your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday. Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT. Can't wait to see you there.
