Look what I found!!!! Earlier this Summer, when I was at my parent’s place in Northern Cal, I bought this fabulous chair. I found it at my favorite shop in Eureka, Shipwreck.
I have big plans of recovering the cushions. The orange is kind of an itchy worn out fabric. What I REALLY want is some fabulous white or cream fabric with gold dots on it. You already know I’m into gold dots. So far I haven’t found any yet, so if you come across some, please let me know.
It’s got that classic midcentury shape, but it needs a little love.
The seat was just an ugly piece of plywood screwed down in a couple random spots, so I decided to replace that with upholstery webbing. I’m sure the original seat was probably leather, but we decided this would be a good solution. My brother helped me figure out how to stretch the webbing and attach it to the seat. I actually really like how it looks and it’s really comfortable.
Can’t you picture this chair with some great new seat cushions? Hopefully gold polka dots of some sort. Have you had any great thrifting adventures lately? I sure have found so fun things lately. And don’t hate me, but I might be going to the Pasadena Flea Market this Sunday with friends. I can’t wait, all that old junk just gets me so excited.
