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 before

The before

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.

Mirrored Furniture

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.
