Do you put up with something for awhile and then for a few more months, until suddenly..enough is enough and you can stand it no longer?
Our chairs; we have had them since forever…they have been through various fashionable crazes, and I still adore them. They are from the late 1940’s, we did have the table to match, sadly gone now. First the chairs were kept intact, after all darker wood was ‘in’ from early to mid 90’s,
Later they were sanded to a paler wood, kept rough and had faux leopard skin seat covers…very Elle Decoration… Circa 2000!
Then 5 yeas ago they were painted with glossy paint and given new seat covers. But I didn’t ever adore the fabric I used for the covers, they were hastily chosen from my fabric stash.
Last weekend the chairs received their latest upcycle……
and with an interested onlooker / photo bomber….!
This new fabric choice is from Ikea C2008.
I found it whilst searching for something else again its from my fabric stash but far more suitable I think?
Can you spot the deliberate mistake below on the red chair?
and after …
All together now….
So what do you think?
