Big Things

are in store for these 4 chairs we scored on Craigslist for the amazing price of $25 per chair.

These pink beauties are going to need a full re-upholstering, but the details are just too beautiful to pass up. I am thinking that a charcoal grey velvet fabric would be pretty dreamy and glamorous.


These guys are going to be a little simpler, by just getting a lovely white linen slipcover. I have been in love with the look of wing back chairs in the dining room for years now, so I am very excited to start sewing! I think the slipcover in the first picture below is exactly what we are looking for~

I love the photos of the white apholstered wing backs in the dining room! My only question (which I keep wanting to ask you but I always forget to leave a comment asking it) is how are you going to keep them clean? I admire all of your white furniture and would love to add some more white pieces in my home, but I always shy away because I am afraid it will get stained/dirty too fast.

I'd love to see a post from you giving tips on living with white : )

can't wait to see what you do with them!

Such a fun project! I Love craigslist finds!! & I agree with Martha- how do you do all the white??

Posts like these make me so sad that my local craigslist has dismal offerings at best. I check the sight faithfully, but never seem to find the great pieces that I see all over the blog world. Boo.

Congrats on your score, I can't wait to see how they turn out!

Wow! I cannot WAIT to see the chairs recovered in a gray velvet. That is going to be stunning! And I love wingbacks in dining rooms too - hurry up and sew so we can see the final result! :)

Oh Holly! These are beauts!! So much potential. I think a grey textured fabric would be so chic for those first two! Can't wait to see the final products.
