Pink Saturday…..my favorite chairs!
This is my very first Pink Saturday!
I’ve dropped by a few Pink Saturday posts as time has allowed in the last few weeks and this looked like fun!
So, since I love PINK! I decided to share a few of my PINK treasures with you!
This week I’d like to introduce you to my pair of French tufted back chairs…these are my favorite chairs! You wouldn’t believe what they looked like when I found them a few years ago at a junk shop. Not a pretty sight…my “before” pictures never came out.
Being one to always see the diamond in the rough…I snapped these up and promptly began searching through my fabric books for the perfect fabric to have them reupholstered in. It wasn’t long before I found this fabulous raspberry color cut velvet upholstery fabric… I was in love!
I left the frames as they were, I love the patinaed white-ish paint, and had my upholsterer redo the sagging seats. I am so pleased with them! They are actually very comfortable and… I feel very princess-y when I sit in one!
For awhile these hung out in my bedroom, but when I rearranged my rooms and created a larger, PINK, dining room a few years ago, I knew these would be perfect gracing the corners on either side of the china cabinet. Here, they are readily available for extra seating and…I can look at them everyday as I pass by the dining room, many times a day!
For more luscious PINK pretties visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound …you’ll be seeing Saturday through rose colored glasses!
Romantic Elegance Style tip: when purchasing movable upholstery pieces such as these chairs, select fabrics that can move into any room of your home. This allows you much versatility as you rearrange and freshen your rooms seasonally.
