My chair back candle holder from a couple of weeks ago? Well, I thought today I would show you
what happened to the rest of the chair.
I love trying to use all of the parts...
This is the seat portion of the chair after the back was removed. Not exactly in great shape...the leather seat was badly damaged and really dirty!
Now here is the great little surprise I found under the leather - caning - should be easy enough to remove, right? Ya - not so much!
I don't know if they used to do this by hand or there was some machine invented back in the day that did it for them, but whatever it was they did a great job!!
This stuff was so secure and hard to remove that I had to call in back up!
This is my son and right-hand man -
when the going gets tough!
Everyone mom should make one of these -
he's 6 foot 4
a hard worker
very patient (even when he thinks my ideas are ridiculous
really good to his mom!
I highly recommend having one of these around!!
We call him Austin and he's a big help - see how he's looking at me with love in his eyes.
He practically worships the ground I walk on...hahahhaha
Now once we got rid of the caning and sanded the surfaces etc. mirrors were installed underneath - transforming them into...
Adorable little side tables - perfect for any corner and great at reflecting the light from a vintage lamp etc.
They are available for sale and will be listed in my shop as soon as I get that page live - really soon!
Thanks for stopping in - have a wonderful weekend!
