I found this little beauty, and if you don't know by now, I'm a sucker for anything tufted. I love the lines of this chair and especially the channel back tufting...and nailhead trim to boot, does it get any better? Okay, so this chair leaves much to be desired, and many would pass this baby up. (That is probably why I got such a screaming deal on it.)
As I pulled off the old cover, I found that the chair had previously been recovered. So my question is, Who would recover this chair in this fabric, Was it ever in style? The original fabric was worn, but pretty cute and vintage, but we still upgraded. I found a great deal on this beautiful soft green patterned fabric. (like $5 a yard, double markdown, clearance sale!) I also earned money on this chair, it gave me a 63 cent tip in loose change. So here it is after, I eliminated some of the nailhead trim, and refinished the wood. What do you think? I may keep it for myself!
We are so happy to introduce our new business adventure. We hate to see "cookie cutter" decor, we know there are more options than what is on the shelves at the big department stores. It is time to break out and try something new, perhaps...trash? That's right, we do all the dumpster diving and thrift store digging for you. In fact, we love it! It is a toss up what we love best about Vintage Market; either the hunt for the project or the satisfaction that comes from a beautifully restored piece. One thing for sure is that our pieces are hand finished and truly one of a kind. The Vintage Market Girls are always searching for good deals so we can pass them on to you. Thanks so much for picking us, we are sure to have a piece just for you. Vintage Market Girls, Brooke and Kari
We love to hear from you! See something you like, we want you to have it.
We became fast friends when we realized that we shared a love for treats, shopping and "trashformation."
