REupholstering Grandma's Chair

Hi Girlfriends, DON'T THROW OUT GRANDMA'S 'FAVORITE' CHAIR just because the fabric looks tattered or the cushion has 'collasped' in size or the varnish has worn thin where your beloved Grandma placed her hands thousands of times. Your chair is a jewel keeper and can be made to pop in a room. TODAY, any upholster CAN make it all look current by adding a new updated stain to the wood (try going the Barbara Berry Java stain or a black lacquer), tightening the springs, new stuffing and puffing up the "too thin" look and ask for more fullness or height (Yes, an upholster can make a back of a chair "grow" too). THEN, have some fun and make this item come alive with fabulous "to the trade" fabrics. Don't forget, to contact us for an affordable price on most "to the trade" designer fabrics.

Here are 9 good reasons why you will want your Grandmother's chair:

I love this chair with this fabric on it. The stain is great too. Then, the chest with the 'hint' of purple and a red lacquer top is wonderful too-!

This marvelous fabric makes this chair pop in any room. I love the subtle pink painted furniture to make it all happen.

The French sure know how to address classique looks with style, dont' they?

C'est this chair perfect for any man's library?

Are you taking in the colors surrounding the furniture? Color walls do play an important part in any setting too.

Q: What pops in this photo? This is why you don't discard Grandma's chair. Subdued colors then PINK-! Love how only the chair and the rug "talk" and one still gets a restful night.

TIP: Your upholster CAN add fabric to the back of any wood exposed dinning chair. AND, by adding a coat of black lacquer to the legs with the final detail being a scrumptious solid fabric you are ready for a romantic dinner for two.

A mellow velvet works too...............and it is still will add to memories in any room choosen for it.

C'est the wood accents just marvelous in this photo?

If you love French style furniture, allow moi, Denise, to suggest a talented designer, Joni, and her blog, Cote De Texas, for ideas and suggestion.

All items are from Roche Bobois out of Paris.

A la prochaine,
