Before and After- A boudoir chair!

The Boudoir Chair!

A funky name for a funky chair!

I picked up this chair at the Alameda Antiques Faire in January.


She was in a bad way.  Soiled upholstery, yuck.

And super gross innards:


So I stripped her all the way down to the bare bones.


Then I refinished her, re-sprung, re-padded and reupholstered her and.......

Voila!



She is wearing Sunara Ikat  from F. Schumacher!

I love the little nailhead accent:

What I would do with that chair!

Saw this little goody today at 
 Leftovers in San Francisco.

Isn't she cute?


I spent a little time daydreaming about her and then thought she would look faboo all done up in vintage barkcloth like this:


I can't help it.  I like big prints on chairs.  It's just the way I am.

Of course, it would look excellent with this little pillow on it:



Then, I would sit in that chair and enjoy a mai tai baby!

Cheers!
