Good Afternooooon lovies. My mother has been kind enough to let me have/make over a Rococo chair she has so that it is better suited for my apartment :) Love you mommaaaaaa!
Anyway, I am still trying to decide what fabric I want to use, and if I should paint/refinish the wood or not. At first I was learning towards this crazy bright ikat fabric, which I love, but I am afraid that in a few years ikat will be a little tired and I won't have the timeless chair I wanted. So, crazy as it sounds, I think I may do a leopard skin fabric. You may be thinking... leopard print? Timeless?
But I am not going to do a cheesy Paris-Hilton's-panties-leopard; I have a few really nice neutral options that could be really nice - and won't make my boyfriend feel like less of a man.
Check out a few of my options below. Opinions?
|Choices choices choices....|
|Here is the chair... pre make over.|
|Here is the ikat I chose first... the repeat is actually really big so there would basically be one and a half centered on the back and seat of the chair.|
|Nice neutral linen leopard... (not pictured above because I am still waiting for the sample!)|
|Same fabric, different color way; also very nice|
|A neutral ikat could also look good|
|Gorgeous tonal linen leopard print|
|Ikat fabric would be fun though, right?! I found this image online while looking for ideas.|
|Love the ikat dot fabric..|
|Pony hair and skulls - crazy!|
