The other day, The Scout arrived home with a chair for me. I have been saying for a while that I wanted an old chair in the style of the brown checked one on the left. He found me one - on the roadside. Apart from the grotty fabric - the rest of the chair is in good condition. The blue rocking chair on the right, is one he found the same way - when I was expecting Mr J (10 years ago). We recovered it in the blue fabric - but as you can see, it needs a lot of TLC too now.
So I am currently thinking of ways to revamp these two chairs - I like the idea of bright funky patchwork, perhaps with painted arms and legs, but also I think relatively plain chairs would be good, so I can change the cushions on them (a good excuse for making new covers.)
What do you think - patchwork , patterned or plain?
