Wing Chair Addition

Monday, March 4, 2013

Well, we have a new addition in the Davis house.  We've got a nice comfy wing chair for the corner between the sofa and the stairs. I'd been wanting a wing chair here for a while and every once in a while would do a quick browse on craigslist to see if there was anything out there. My goal was to find a well proportioned chair in good condition for around $50 that I could reupholster.  Well, this baby was $70 (still not bad).  It's in great shape. We will reupholster it down the line but in the meantime the color scheme surprisingly works (although it adds a grandma element to the room).  



As you can see Floopy is already a fan.  I can't wait to get some art up on the wall in the next few weeks to make the room look more complete.  I'm hoping to find some really fun graphic print for the wing chair along with something maybe slightly smaller scale for the two caned back chairs.

  1. Hey! Just popped over from LGN--- you should totally paint that chair! There are several examples online of painted upholstery and I'm doing one of my own right now. Your floor is stunning, btw!

  2. Paula, I actually thought of doing that. And funnily one of the chairs I found on Craigslist was a painted upholstered chair someone was selling. The problem is that the upholstery is sort of a crewelwork so it has a heavy embroidered texture that I think wouldn't work for painting. Thinking that maybe taking that upholstery class at my local community college could pay off on something like this.

  3. your black chairs and white tables both are looking fine. No problem... you are installed both at very well place. Looking beautiful. Don't care of those people who said they are looking bad or you did not right.
