Now is the time when everything I started gets finished. Well, it’s also the time I buy new things that need to be finished, because it’s my biggest event of the year and I have to give it everything I’ve got, but that’s another post.
One thing I finished this week was the sibling to my French twins of 2017…
I finished one of them a few weeks ago, but then I shelved upholstery work for a while and opted to work on painted furniture.
While upholstery is something I can do, it’s not something I enjoy. I like the end result of the transformation and, unfortunately, the process has to happen in order to get to the finish line. So, I give myself a pep talk and make it happen.
They turned out great. The second one, that I had been avoiding for weeks, ended up being a piece of cake. I already had the pieces cut and the double-welting made, so it was just a matter of stapling everything in place.
I don’t have as many upholstered chairs as I usually do at Lucketts, but I just didn’t have much luck finding them at a good price this year. It ended up being a good thing, because I was not in the mood for a ton of upholstery!
I painted the frames of the chairs in Farmhouse White, distressed the edges, and upholstered them in antique windowpane toweling.
I like the height and scale of these chairs. They would be good for occasional chairs, but could also be used as end chairs at a dining table. I like pieces like this that offer some options to a buyer.
This is another working weekend.
We have new goodies to paint, price and pack…
