Feature Friday: Musee D'Orsay Chairs

I've been really tardy with my posts lately.  I was all set to post this on Friday and then my toddler got the 24 hour flu.  Just when I thought my husband and I had escaped catching it, we both came down with it over the weekend.  I spent all weekend laying on the couch and I was exhausted from that.  On the plus side, we're all caught up on TV!

But we're all on the mend now and I have been waiting to share this awesome transformation with you guys.

Ange from Chair Up (great blog name!) took these balloon-back chairs from whoa to wow.

Gorgeous right?  Now check out the before pic!

That fabric, oh my goodness.  There aren't words.  So needless to say, just recovering the seats made a HUGE difference.  But she also painted the chair frame with a grey and white antique finish.  Looks amazing.

There's some great detail work on these chairs.  I love this floral carving and the shape of the legs.

Then she used our Musee D'Orsay stencil package (you get the address and scrollwork and the chair is separate) and did the chair in a muted grey, address in black.  Looks very sharp!

And then she made 4 of them!!  Don't they look marvelous at that dining room table?

You should absolutely check out Chair Up, it's a great blog.  Here's a link to the specific post I'm referencing here

Here's a link to our French section, which has the Musee D'Orsay stencil. 

Is it Tuesday already?  We'll be back tomorrow with our regularly scheduled Etspiration!

Have you gotten your pumpkin yet?  I think I'm going to paint a pumpkin this year instead of sacrificing my kitchen to pumpkin guts.  I saw this chevron pumpkin on Apartment Therapy that was too cute but there was no explanation as to how it was done.

I'm going to use this tutorial and report back!
