Well I spotted the PERFECT one on craigslist on Friday and was able to go and pick it up yesterday. I loved it when I saw it in the listing. I loved it when I saw it in person, and I loved it soooooo much when I saw it in place in our bedroom. My husband had forbade me from purchasing any other furniture for the upstairs until we completed the renovation, but I knew this deal was too good to pass up, and when he saw it in person, he agreed. I know the fabric is a little retro, but look at the lines! Look at the detail! It's so comfortable too. I will trade someone a dining set to reupholster it for me (I'll buy the upholstery fabric too). I think eventually I'd like to put a more modern floral with a slightly more pastel undertone, slightly less earth-tone. And I'll paint the frame. But for now, it will work.
What do you think?
|So we still need to tape and mud the walls, redo the floors, and install the ceilings, but we're getting there!|
|Love the detail of the legs. Just imagine this painted an antique white with a tinted wax on top to bring out the detail.|
|Beautiful carved handholds|
