Family's New Home: The Chairs Makeover

1:36:00 PM

Who among you here have old chairs that you couldn't wait to get rid of? Well this family got plenty of them. My client told me that she swore not to see all those chairs once they moved! Guess what? She's seeing more of them now. But of course this time, "hate" wouldn't be the first thing she'll think of.

Here's a piano bench that's headed to the trash. They even used it as construction stool. (read: patungan ng pintura at kalat.. haha)

 This wil go to one bonus room I'm doing for the house. I'll share it once it's done. So loving the fabric, I bought the fabric even before showing it to the client 'coz I don't mind having it in case they didn't like it. Turns out they love it as much I do. :)

For the den. Black and white is great. Stripes is great. Black and white PLUS stripes is amazing! haha... Sorry for the plastic wrap thing, didn't want to remove it yet since there's still construction going on. 

So the next time you see some un-pretty chairs lying around, don't hate it just yet. :)

  5. Thank you! :) They're black and navy blue.

    As for the upholsterer, he asked for a one week extension, then he was late for 2 hours on our meeting. So as much as I love the chairs now, I can't recommend him.

    Thanks again.
