Vintage Chairs

Posted January 25th, 2013 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

About a week ago I received an email from a customer sharing her before/after photos of a recent chair project using a chair she found at Gather & Collect.  Since then I’ve had vintage chairs on the brain.

It just takes a great chair, a vision, some fabric and a whole lot of staples to make a vintage chair new again.  Our customer Meghan had that vision when she stumbled across a chair at our store.

Here’s a fantastic “Before and After” shot of her project.

Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I remember loving this chair in the before state, but a fresh coat of paint and some cheery fabric breathed new life into it.  So fresh and so clean;)    Great job, Meghan!

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
