I decided it was time to live up to my blog name, Queen of Chairs, up to this point I have not shared very many chairs, and the ones I have shared have all been finished. Well that's all about to change. I am a true chair hoarder, I buy them, rescue them from the curb, get them free from people. Some people might walk into a store and leave with some candy, a new shirt or soda, but not me I usually leave with a new chair. My friends, mother, husband and son, all think there is something wrong with me? I just love me some chairs!
Ok, this is my frenhcy, I posted her awhile back. Well she is getting a makeover as we speak, and then she will go for sale at KDM. I will post it again when it's done. Wish me luck, I already slammed my hand into the basement ground pulling out staples.....and my reupholstering skills are so so stinky.
Now this is where it gets bad
Ladder back country chair, humm I forgot I had it, because it was buried in dirty clothes
I like this chair, it's from the 50's or 60's, it has a really good look to it, my husband got it for free from a storage unit. I painted the frame a pale blue but the rest of it, well it needs some help, and I really need help to fix it. Any takers? Or maybe you know a good tutorial that might help me?
Ouch, this is the furnace and oil tank room/chairs that need help room. The country chairs with the rattan seats are from my old dining set, they will be sold if they ever get painted? The wooden chairs are old oak press back chairs, If I tell you I bought them for extra seating you might think I sound crazy? There is a chair behind the press back chair you can see the top of it kind of, well it is a really old chair and it's fantastic! The front chair, I started to cane, and never finished, the Windsor chair with the spokes is also an old chair, given to me from my mother-in-law, oh and don't forget the sleeper all the way in the back, it's really dirty it came from a barn, very pretty chair, but I just don't feel like cleaning it.
Here is the sister to the chair I started to cane, this chair is 95% canned, I am not gonna lie, I quit, it stunk it was really hard, and I messed up a lot as you can see, but I really really love these chairs and I wanted to restore them for my dining room, but instead I just hoard them in my basement. One day I will finish.
Ok, now were going to leave the basement, and go into the craft room/third bedroom/nightmare room, this room really needs help, last winter we had an issue with our chimney and soot got on the walls and ceiling this room is the last room left that needs to be painted, so instead of painting it,
I hoard chairs in it.
Don't worry there's more
The chair with the paint swatch (I'm going to repaint my dining room that color) is one of my favorite chairs, it an early empire tiger oak T back chair, I love it I have two of them at my dining room table. the other chair is also very very old, it's primitive and a little scary to sit in, but I love that about it.
I made the slip cover for this chair thank to the MMS blog! Considering that I am a beginner sewer I think I did pretty good, there are a lot of mistakes, buts who's looking, right?
The big orange throne, this is my favorite chair, oh boy did I get some slack when
I brought this chair home for a whopping $10
I still have more chairs in my house, but I think you get the point.
Now be honest, do you think I have a problem?
