Love these chairs!


I love the look of these Horchow chairs . . .
but not the price . . . $2,400 and $1,800!

                            Old Hickory Tannery "Marla" Chair 

                             French Laundry Home "La Jolla" Chair


But! I was walking around Goodwill the other day and saw a real
diamond in the rough.
The sold sign was torn off -
someone had already seen the potential.
However, that customer had changed their mind
and left the store. So, I paid my $9.99 and
took it to the car.

So, here it is . . . in the rough!  It looks so sad right now, but I'm really excited to
give this chair its complete makeover!  It has great bones and they're about to show!

Stay tuned!

This project is linked with Saturday Soiree at A Little Lovely.

Wow that chair has some serious potential! The cushion looks like it's in great condition. Please don't tell me you were lucky enough to find it filled with down also??? I will be even more envious if so :)

I can't wait to see how you finish it. I just finished a similar french wingback chair in a black and cream damask print. Check it out if you're interested:
