{Wonderful Chairs}

A few of you had asked about my beautiful (my words, ha!) chairs in my apartment pictures a while back...
Not too long ago my mom approached me about a few chairs she had aquired. She was offering them to me - we could redo them however I wanted so I would have dining room chairs that were individually mine (and only mine!).

{Note the amazing Swedish Christmas Windmill a la Griswold family from Christmas Vacation?!}
Said chairs currently reside in my living room.
Our new apartment doesn't really have room for 4 chairs around the dining table, but they are small enough that they fit perfectly into our cozy living room.
That way they are a focal point, as well they should be.

We used an Alexander Henry fabric called "Viceroy" that I love. My lovely mother stripped and painted the chairs, then off to the upholsterer they went.

Voila!
My one of a kind chairs.

I'm in love with those chairs!!!! I have one I could redo that's living in my basement right now. When we have more space, I'd like to get a fabric like the one you chose. So beautiful!
