It's been busy around here and I'm so excited to show you my next two chairs just completed!!
I've got 7 chairs to do by the end of August...plenty of time I know:)
I was ecstatic to come across these two Parker dining chairs a few months ago - after already re-designing 6 of them last year which you can read about here and here. - I love the simple design and retro modern look of Parkers, hence me being a little excited!!
These are a different style from the previous ones I did. Here's the before -
It had green boucle fabric which had really worn out its welcome! And each chair has 4 buttons on the back (a first for me) which I kept...but didn't!!
A little cryptic, I know, but you'll see what I mean ;)
Another first for me was re-finishing the woodwork, which had to be done as it was faded pretty bad.
It was just a case of sanding then two coats of danish oil. So much better!!
And now the finished chairs..........
I kept the look of the button back, but didn't actually use a button to do it!!
It took a little trial and error, but I eventually figured it out. I forgot to take pics of the process, but I'm happy to post how I did it step-by step if you're interested?!
I've got to go and do the mum thing now, but please let me know what you think :)
These babies are getting packed up tight in preparation for September 1st, which I am yet to tell you about...I promise I will when it gets closer!!
Have a great week!!
