Chair Re-Do...

Sorry this week has been slow on posts... they're all swimming around in my head but not coming out of my fingertips to the keyboard! and I'm tired... and working a lot... BUT I have been wanting to show ya what I might be doing to my Queens trash find Asian Chippendale...

Sorry the crappy quality of photo!

A couple of years ago I painted it a flat black and gold leafed the grooves of the bamboo - also reupholstered the seat with a hot pink suede type fabric. ( when I ordered the fabric - which wasn't cheap!- I was expecting a more lively color but it's been OK for now...)

BUT I came across this image and love the way the chair looks in gold!! It's not on my immediate to do list... just something I'm considering...

Image source?? SORRY!!

What do ya think? Black or gold?! (now I have "black and gold to the superbowl!" song in my head! - if you're from NOLA, you know the song!)

I thought this chair was on the outs? I'm glad you still have it and think you should go for the gold look...planning to use the same gold as the on the bust?!?

Love the gold and black seat - I have a bamboo chair that I am painting white and having a white cushion made - so we will have to compare at the end! Happy Halloween!

@Rachel - I had it on craiglist for sale but no one wanted it for $150 - so i'm keeping it! We might actually VRBO our rental when Casey moves out so I have to furnish that side too! Another fun project huh!?
@Elizabeth - can't wait to see yours in white! We have too much white furniture in the store - I couldn't go white - I'd feel like I was at work! LOL

I pick the gold. What about gold leafing it. It would have more texture than spraying it.
