I picked up these two Drexel French shaped chairs at good ol’ GW the other day for $8 a piece.
I was musing on the Twice Lovely Facebook Fan Page that when I get pieces like this, I always oscillate between a desire to play up the lovely frenchiness in a traditional and beautiful way, and a desire to go outside the box and unexpected and take something very traditional, and make it fantastically funky.
This time, I could not deny the the stunning french shape of this pair, so I decided to paint them a yummy french gray, distressed with the white primer peeking through. I upholstered the seats with the same fabric I used on the French Drop Leap Dining Set. I just love the gray and chocolate brown combination!
And don’t they look GREAT with this side table I did ages ago (in the same gray)?
Just so you don’t think I’ve gone completely straight and predictable, I was working on another project simultaneously with these chairs that couldn’t be farther on the spectrum of funkiness. Here’s a little sneaky peek…
More to come soon! Muahahahaha!!!!!
