Mission: Preferably Pastels


by: Bethany


This was a very fun special order, as Carole, our client/customer (is that the right word?) said we could do whatever we liked with the dresser and nightstand"...preferably a pastel, and not pink."

There's quite a range of colors that aren't pink, and finding  one that didn't look too "baby" was a bit tricky. 

We finally settled on this pale turquoise called "Transparent" that complemented the fabric Carole gave us for the chair.

Before:


The dresser sustained some injuries on it's way to our house, but Becca reattached the corner with a strong wood epoxy!

We copied the gold paint along the edges, but used white instead, and spray painted the hardware to match.

After:


I can't quite figure old how old this chair is. I know it's vintage, but I can't find anything quite like it online. The barrel back seems to be a midcentury modern style, so it could be circa 1940-1960, or at least that's my amateur guess.

Before:


The narrow groove where the original fabric was stapled was too small for my staple gun.
So I stapled just a bit higher, and then attached three rows of piping to cover the staples and the edge of the fabric.


After:


Last fall, I did another chair for Carol with the same fabric. These two will be such a cute pair, as their styles are so different, yet they'll match with their white wood and gold/yellow fabric.


Another mission accomplished!
