chair revival

I rescued this little Heywood Wakefield chair at an antique store a few months ago. After alot of sanding, a few coats of paint and some Amy Butler fabric, I've got myself a new chair. {Thanks for your help Clint}.


  1. um... i think they are both cute... does that mean i have bad taste? i just realized it's three in the morning, i thought it was 2. lame.

  2. killer! great lines, great fabric, and great skills knowing it was a Heywood Wakefield.

    (I, of course, have no idea what a Heywood Wakefield is, but I've always dreamed of an antique find and being able to say "oh wow an original *such n such*!")

  3. when I grow up can I have style like you?

  6. I just saw your chair on Nesting Blog and I was like HEY! I know her!
