Keep it or Sell it?

A while ago, I bought this chair –

Now you must envision some TLC.  Spray paint it white, get a seat cushion made in some chinoiserie fabric and call it a day.  However, projects piled on top of days and this poor chair has been sitting idle in my work shop mom’s garage.  Recently, I’ve felt that I’ll sell it and let someone else do the dirty work.  But then I happened on to this photo…


Via Domino

The end chairs in this dining room shot have a very similar feel to my chair (once fixed up) and I find them gorgeous.

So what to do…keep it or sell it?

    KEEP IT ! ! ! i can see it in an orange high gloss laquer or a coral. . . of course as your photo says, white and/or black are ALWAYS great.

    I’m with everyone else! Keep it! A bright color is a great idea. You could also do the dirty work then sell it at a premium!

    Keep it! At least paint it white, that’ll take just 30 mini minutes 🙂
