A pretty pair


These things were sitting at the thrift store for a couple weeks...I'd walked by then several times, and watched the price drop, and decided to rescue them. A little paint, some new fabric...




They do still need to have a clear topcoat put on, but I wanted to see if anyone out there could give me their opinion first. To glaze, or not to glaze....My goal is to sell these. Most of these makeovers that I see in blogland end with dark glaze. But I'm really liking them as they are. Here is a blogger who's work I really love who did a chair with the same color and fabric as the blue one, but glazed.
And my blue one...not glazed. I love the glazed...I love the pop-iness of the color on the unglazed....does anyone else out there have an opinion?...anyone?

  1. I do really like how the glazed look brings out the details on the chair, but I also like your chairs without the glaze. Maybe if you did a lighter coating of glaze or something to make the details on the chair pop a little more, but not so dark as the post you linked? Just a thought... :)

  2. It's hard because I think it would depend on the buyer's decor. Glazed and unglazed to me seems like two different styles, ya know? The black glazing is sometimes too much in my opinion. It is nice to bring the details out though. My opinion would be to glaze, but wipe off a good bit of it only leaving enough to accent not overwhelm. Maybe a different color glaze on the blue?

  3. I like the idea of a lighter glaze. Is that possible? The chairs sure look georgeous!! Why do you live so far away??
