One of two recliners I nicked from nanaThis is one half of my new project: turning my Nana's chairs into something spectacular. Hopefully. My grandparents were given them by their children eons ago as a present and I very rudely asked if I could have them. Well, I did offer to buy them (if she didn't use them and was happy to part with them) but she's too nice to let me so I'll have to think of something nice to do in return.
While visiting with the babies last week I took a quick pic of one of them. They need a fair bit of work - Nana recovered them ages ago herself - the foam might need replacing and the wood will be sanded back and restained. However, I'm all excited about the challenge and can't wait to see them sitting in front of my living room windows/front door. I was going to go a white colour for the cushions cause that's my normal first boring solution to everything. BUT I fell in love with these pics of blue chairs and think they'd look excellent in a turquoise fabric with the wood stained a mid-brown. So, I'm actually going to get a little colourful and not just because Lou has blue chairs (although seeing hers did kick off the idea).
Love this colour. Pic stolen from Danielle's site
