What To Do...What To Do...







Such a beautiful antique chair.





I seem to be having this dilemma a lot lately. 

Beautiful pieces that just need something to update them but to not lose sight of who they are..





Hence this posts' title - what to do?



Well, as I always say..


'when in doubt get the union jack out!!!' (not really;-)






Oh yeah!!



That is all.

Perfect! That is a wonderful update.
Me too..I'm loving the rustic natural wood.
On my most recent project, I'm leaving the top of the dresser natural. Love the combination of new and old.

Perfect, I love that you didn't paint it for the sake of it. Did the fabric just happen to fit perfectly or did you paint it so it was the exact size (or is that a silly question in the first place?)

There's no such thing as a silly question Julie;) it's a fabric panel and just happened to be the perfect size! It came on a bolt and you had to buy a metre which has four of the union jacks printed on, probably meant for cushions I'd say.

perfect! I thought you'd painted it on fabric too...so cool that you found fabric that fit :)

Ooooh - nice save! I have a set of dining chairs that were to be my maternity leave project. Ah, that would be nearly 12 years ago and they're still in the garage. You're inspiring me to do something with them!
