Yes. Completely heinous. But the potential was infinite.
Structurally, these chairs are impeccable! Quality furniture is definitely harder to find these days, so when I find something I can spruce up, I want to jump on the opportunity.
Did I mention when when we purchased the chairs there was a mishap with the "military discount button" and she charged us $20 for BOTH. When I questioned her she just didn't even care. Um, ok... thanks? Score!
But look at what they look like after! And by "they" I really mean one, because I still have to do the other one...
I immediately knew I wanted them to be a cream color, so that they would really pop. But I was so worried they would dirty quickly. I know they still will, I'm sure, but it was worth it.
See how fantastic (and interesting) that wood detailing is? I love it and I am in love with these chairs. And now it has clearly sparked something even bigger, now that I've lugged an entire sofa home to reupholster.
