Something old, something new


This gorgeous chair that I had updated for our home just arrived back from the polisher/upholsterer. This was a very old dark timber antique chair, the fabric was in tatters, it was missing 2 of the 3 tall detailing in the back of the chair. With a bit of TLC it has come up looking beautiful. Im so happy with it! The turquoise and gorgeous bold stripes are such a lovely look to a quite a traditional chair. Look at the before shot - yikes!

Have a gorgeous weekend everyone. Kellie xx
