Take a Chair…………

June 2nd, 2010

I love chairs… I think it may be my one weakness……………..!
I purchased this one a few years ago with a view to reupholstering it.

But, alas, it’s sat in a corner… collecting dust… while I’ve tried and tried…………… to decide what to do with it…………………………… a little gilding perhaps……………… or maybe I could paint it black or cream………………….. hmm decisions, decisions……………….
what would you do with it……………….?

    quizás le quedara bien haciéndolo saby chic, aunque dorado también quedaría bien.
    realmente lo que decida quedara bien
    un abrazo

    Probably it still had to him well doing it saby chic, though gilded also it would stay well.
    Really what should decide it could only well
    An embrace

  2. Hello Contar,

    I have been undecided since the day I purchased it… I’m still undecided… I am finding it difficult to make my mind up, but thanks for your advise!

    Hugs, Lisa x

    Hola Contar,

    He estado indeciso desde el día que lo compró … Todavía estoy indeciso … Me resulta difícil hacer que mi mente para arriba, pero gracias por tu consejo!

    Abrazos, Lisa x

    Dear Lisa, It’s a beautiful ‘muted toned’ chair and looks as if it doesn’t need ‘anything’ done to it! however, I understand how you feel as I have a Louis? chair and must decide whether to leave as is, or paint and recover! The problem is I know it would look stunning painted because that’s what I love best. If it’s an antique it is so much harder to pick up the brush!! Terryx

    oops! and I’ll just add, my chair is no antique! Terry

  5. Hi Terry,

    It is kind of cute as it is I guess, but it has dark wood and I have light wood or painted furniture so I guess it doesn’t go in my house, I bought it knowing I’d want to change it.

    Your Louis chair sounds lovely… picture please 🙂

    I think it has to be painted, I’m just not sure how…

    Hugs to you on this beautiful day!

    Oh paint it cream!! Yummmmmmmmy! Love Helen x

  7. Hi Helen,

    I think I’ve made my mind up with cream and I quite fancy a pink velvet on the back and a pink flocked style one the seat… next question, shall I attempt it myself or pay a professional…….?

    Decisions, decisions…….

    Hugs, Lisa x
