I am trying to get more photos in advance so that I can post them and keep everyone updated on the projects I am currently working on. I just started a new “real” job so I may have less time to do things as often. However, in more awesome news, I have been waiting to do anything too drastic to the kitchen until we officially owned our house. The papers went through on Tuesday and we are officially homeowners!! So you know what that means….Kitchen Makeover!!! Say WHAAAA???!!! Don’t worry I’ll get good “Before” shots so you can get the full majesty of the kitchen as it is now! Anyway, there are some of my newly purchased items and some of the stuff I have been working on.
This is the part I dislike about the chair. That bar across the back and the thick outline of the wood is no bueno! I am going to try to see what I can do to work around that. We will see how it turns out.
I also stumbled upon a little end table that has no partner but is still so cute. It is in really nice condition and the paint is okay but petty outdated. I am going to make a vintage french country piece out of this! I may love it enough to keep it because I can already see the finished product in my head!
Keep checking in to see updates on these pieces. If anyone is looking for a custom item and they see something they like on here, hit me up on Etsy and I can give you a custom color or style! I love doing custom pieces for people so don’t be shy!
The weird part about these chairs is that some parts of the chair a clearly plastic, like the top part shown here. While other parts are wood, like the legs, base and back of the chair. This is the amazing upholstery that I had to remove. The checked pattern had a t-shirt and a towel as padding underneath it.
This seat was covered in several towels and what I assume to be a cut up piece of a car seat cover. I was slightly grossed out taking the material off because of the puffs of dust and who knows what else that would come out with every nail and staple.
Don’t mind my car, the backgrounds always get a little interesting when you take your pictures in the garage. I will keep posting the progress of the chairs, and they will be up for sale soon!
