I mean really, is there anything cooler than a gorgeous Mid-Century Chair? Check out this beauty that I picked up at a garage sale.
I will not be painting this girl. I will be polishing up the stain and I already have my fabric picked out. I am going to pair it up with an amazing sewing stool from the mid-century as well that I came across not too long ago! I almost passed up the stool because it had missing buttons and was ripped where they used to be. I try to follow my rule not to buy anything broken...but how hard can it be to find the right size fabric buttons and cover them in fabric and and sew them back in? I guess I'll find out soon.
This chair and the sewing stool look like they were a match made in heaven and they haven't even been refinished yet! I am super excited about getting started on this project.
I actually thought this was a Bernhardt chair when I first picked it up. But with a quick google search I found it here and here. Looks like a Broyhill Brasilia Chair. Pretty cool huh?
I was not actually out garage-sale-ing it, I was headed to the grocery store and I had just my two girls with me. They noticed the garage sale on our way to the store and asked if we could stop. Of course I said yes! But oddly it was 4pm on a Saturday afternoon. The girls picked out a little pink ring and watch and I got this baby.
It's been a several weeks now and on my recent trips to the grocery store driving the same route, I've noticed about 5 more of these chairs in the garage of a house two doors down from where the garage sale was. Did the person I buy this from borrow it from their neighbor and then sell it to me? Crazy to think of the possibilities there. I am so tempted to knock on the door where I saw the others in the garage and ask if I can buy them. Or maybe I should let them know I have their missing chair? But I'm certain they'll want it back! What should I do?
Well in the meantime I have big plans for this beauty! If you love her now, just wait until I'm done with her....or maybe all 6 of them if I dare go knock on the door...
