blast from the (not so distant) past

come, let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? here we go waaaaay back to mid-september when i posted about transforming these bad boys:


into these lovely ladies:


(can you tell that i got a new camera between the before and after? don't answer that. user error.)

a month later, they are still looking fab flanking my console table. rather, flanking the place where my console stood before i hauled it to the other room for a major makeover (see today's previous post). i'm re-posting the chairs and linking up to furniture feature friday at an awesomely inspiring blog i recently found, mustard seed creations. miss mustard seed has officially made the list of "people i want to be when i grow up slash immediately." wanna see more? here's the original post in all her detailed furniture-refinishing-newbie glory.

I love it! I am a huge fan of Swedish/French style and you really captured that with the fabric and paint job. That chair was pretty before, but now it has a whole new look. Well done! By the way, I've become a follower. I can't wait to see what else you do.

Very pretty! I like the flower on the back. I just redid chairs that have flowers on the back {different but flowers}.

Doesn't modern fabric make a difference (although you'd never know it -yet- by looking at my posts)! Good job.
