Bergere Chairs are {almost!} DONE - a Sneak Peek!


So...remember way back in March, I posted about the tedious and arduous task of stripping our Bergere chairs, and I never really followed up on it? 

If you need a reminder, the bergere chairs used to look like this:

I absolutely ADORE the upholstery fabrics - especially the bird one. It was from my Sarah Richardson moment from this post!


Well, it took *AGES* to finish the stripping of the old upholstery, then spray the chairs glossy white. 

We were able to get the chairs to my friend later in the summer who was able to reupholster them {for the most part}. 

We still have to finish the nail heads or get the double piping done to finish the edges, but I could NOT resist posting them.  

Because I am in LOVE with them!

So what do you think? Do you love them? {YES is the only acceptable answer.}

I absolutely love them.. I just watched an episode of Sarah's House or By Design or something and they were talking about upholstering chairs!!

Yes, I totally LOVE them! As in I'm IN love with them! and want to run to my Goodwill today and find a chair to upholster! Except I don't know how to upholster a chair with fabric on both sides :) They seriously look amazing, you did a great job! So fun and sunny :) Thank you so much as well for your sweet comment on my blog last week too, I really appreciate it!

ofcourse!! what am i looking to spend to recreate your look?

Hi Melanie! The chairs were scored about $50 each, then paint we had on hand. The fabric was about $75. It's not that much for a custom look. The fabric was expensive because I choose a repeating pattern material so we have A LOT of extra fabric,which I'll be using to make pillows :)

Wow! What a great transformation! The fabric choices really are great: my favourite is the chevron back. I LOVE when chairs have a different back fabric peaking out. Fabulous!!!
