The French House

Posted June 23, 2010 by Christina

The French House is located in England and it looks like a little piece of chair heaven!  I am obsessed with old chairs and recovering them (currently have 5 projects in the works for old chairs).  I think I would die if I were to see so many beauties in one space... Not to mention all of the other treasures it looks like they have there!

A step-by-step blog of your recovering projects would be wonderful! I have three chairs I am afraid of beginning!

Oh yes these chairs look magnificent. I’d love to adopt them all to our loving home and to give them the make over they all so deserve!

Happy rest of the week love.

I wish I had the talent and the patience to do them myself. I will be sending them out and show you the before and after for sure!

I am afraid to buy something that needs works as when it arrives at our home, it will never be done.
Therefore I am on a quest for a Bentwood rocker in good shape.. for some reason, the antique shops and flea markets have a lot of them.
