O.J. and Mr. Lime are back in their new skin! You recall this post in which we said goodbye to two of my husband's grandmother's armchairs. They used to spend time on our back sunporch and weren't fit to be sat upon. Here's O.J. ready for his close up:
Now here they are in our living room. There are so many rooms in our house that could use this lovely pair, but we'll leave them here for now and see where the years take them. Ready?
Check out those legs...
I heart them!
If you can tell from the first picture of O.J., they used be skirted. We opted to have the skirting removed and repainted those legs with some glossy black paint before sending the chairs off for their makeover. I think it updates them and gives them a more contemporary look.
So, there you have the finished product. If you're in the Cleveland area and need a piece redone, check out Select Upholstery. They'll completely repair and restore your pieces too - even the guts of these chairs got a much needed facelift.
What do you think?
