I have a fun new addition to the Pursuing Vintage Shop that will spark your imagination and get your creative juices flowing! These Louis XV style chairs are in terrific condition, and the upholstery is clean. But these need an update. Seriously!
But think of the potential… It’s time for some inspiration!
Let’s start by looking at this beautiful example available at Ballard for a pretty penny. You can choose your fabric from a nice selection, but a single chair will run you $600-800.
OR you can pick up this great pair from Pursuing Vintage and customize them any way you want! For a lot less!
Check out these great ideas:
Bright, fun, funky fabric gives these a modern edge.
A bold print and painting the frames can transform the chairs.
Paint the frames white with chalk paint and use a nice linen for a chair that can go anywhere.
Keep the frames natural and go for a country French look.
(Look at what she started with – practically the same chairs as the Pursuing Vintage chairs!!)
You can tackle this project yourself and use Miss Mustard Seed’s Reupholstery Series as a guide.
How would YOU makeover these chairs? Something bold and bright? Or soft and traditional?
