As you can see I love these vintage cane chairs quite a bit.LOL. I was so happy to found the settee/bench. Let me share the before images.
The old velvet fabric was removed and I gave them a good clean. I want to keep the classy style and I used 3 yards (60″ wide) of a beautiful brocade fabric. After surfing the in I came to a conclusion that Hollywood Regency colors was definitely the style I was aiming for. I have used semi gloss spray paint from Rustleoum the primer and paint kind.
Above: Here is the inspiration.
Below: This is how my settee looks like so far. The chair is still drying but I couldnt resist posting my first picture.
I am planning to make some small decorative pillows. Next week you will see the cane chair after is done.
I have always wanted a mirrored furniture. One day I saw this beautiful desk/vanity at a store. I fell in love, it is was so beautiful. But no way I want it to spend high tag price. No this time.
At agarage sale i got this vanity. It was sturdy and all it needed was love. I got plenty of that. It was sanded it, painted it and added craft mirrors.
and look at it now. I am in love.
I always wanted to have a room divider that I could renew using style. At every garage sale I visited always looked until I finally found one for $ 7.00. I removed the white material and wooden rods.
This is how it looked before I got the image from another website. I forgot to take a before picture of my project.
