I love a great re-upholstery project and these two inherited antique chairs turned out just the way I was hoping.


The chairs were really nice to begin with, but didn't fit the young, cape-cod style of the home and we needed a more kid friendly fabric for this family with 3 children under 7 years old.

We chose this greenish/grayish velvet-textured fabric because it looks like a high-end velvet but is 100% polyester so it will clean up fabulously.

We didn't want to ruin the antique feeling of the chairs, but the wood frame did not match the home so we did a white rub on the frame to give it a white-washed/antique look. And with the help of my favorite upholsterers, Rocky Mountain Upholstery, this is our finished product!

And my E-Design update is that I am no longer accepting E-Design clients for the time being. I hope to return to doing E-Design in the near future, but for now my schedule is filling up to the point that I can't dedicate the time I would like for these projects. I appreciate all of my E-Design clients who have been SO incredibly great and fun to work with and I hope to return to doing E-Design soon!

And some more news is that our new website/blog is almost finished! I can't wait to share the new site with you so stay in touch and have a great week!
