Vintage Chairs Revitalized

Who knew that one little weekend trip to Palm Springs would drum up so much material?  I’ve got to talk about the trip again.  While there, I spied six tall back dining chairs that had huge potential for a client’s dining nook.  I wish I had a better before picture but here is my before shot…

The chairs had a great look to them but the fabric on it was not going to cut it for my client’s little ones.  This is the breakfast table where they eat most of their meals and so I wanted to replace the fabric with stress free faux shagreen vinyl that mom can wipe off with a sponge.  For the back, we went with a Trina Turk indoor outdoor fabric (how Palm Springs of us).  I just love how they turned out…

I love the chairs in her kitchen nook and I’m so happy that I could bring a bit of Palm Springs home for her. 🙂  Vinyl and Indoor Outdoor makes it possible to go with light fabrics and to have red spaghetti for dinner without worries.

    Such a smart combination of contrasting materials! And faux shagreen? Both practical AND pretty.

    Well that is so dang smart of you to use the vinyl on the front and the good stuff on the backs! I have a similar faux shagreen “upholstered” to the top of my antique coffee table, and I tell you, that stuff is indestructible. Ball point pen wipes right off When does ball point pen wipe off anything?

    Anyway, great choice!
