This seems to be an American Empire chair:
This is one scary before picture.
Beautiful shape and nice sturdy mahogany wood frame.
I had to cut out all the upholstery and basically gut it. This part sucks eggs, that's for sure, but it's a work in progress. Beer me patience! (Office joke)
I finished this beauty:
Love the lines, wide seat & back..mid-century modern Danish style.
Eww..yeah, this wasn't working. It reminds me of a nurses uniform from the 50s - FAIL. I stopped before attaching the seat - back to the drawing board!
Black distressed paint is much better and I tied in the fabric from the drapes. Yep..this will work!
One more..I picked this up Wednesday and I'm making the slipcover now:
It's a solid frame and super comfortable. And it reminds me of armchairs I was admiring at Williams-Sonoma. It has that 30s-40s sitting room style and it's perfect in the den. So my little den is really shaping up and everyone in my house is diggin' it!
I celebrated my wedding anniversary yesterday and my sweet, sweet husband gave me a beautiful locket with a picture of him and my son in it. I just love it! We're also going on a little trip to celebrate and I am taking plenty of pictures of the cool shops I'm planning on visiting. Alot of fun stuff to look forward to!
Have a fun Friday!
