Placed on either side of a chest of drawers in a bedroom these foldaway bridge chairs were in need of new seats, covers, and some TLC. They will come in handy when extra seating is needed around the dining table or as a desk chair.
I do renovate, rejuvenate and update things all the time, so I did have the stain, wood, wadding, upholstery fabric and my trusty staple gun so this was a quick and easy project.
It is hard to find an attractive & functional laundry basket so when the basketwork started to break down, I simply added some fabric that was on hand that co-ordinated with both the paint and the trim on the basket. Cut to size, folded over neatly to hem and then stapled, this makeover took only 5 minutes. I love the fabric and so was happy to use it.
This was the dining room when I viewed the house to buy, it was to me, ugly, with the dusty drapes, the cheap curtains, the lilac ceiling and beige wall. I fell in love with it. I imagined special meals here with friends and family. Built in 1928, the walls are plaster, there are 5 windows, a door to the front hall and a butlers door to the kitchen that swings open. I was sold on the house before I saw the other rooms.
We had to do the work in the stages from both an economical and practical standpoint. Here was the view of the Butler’s door from the kitchen and now, the refinished side from the dining room.
