Look What the Mr . Got Me

Hey All. Hope your week is going well. Mine has been pretty good. I'm looking forward to seeing "The Help" tonight!! Read the book, loved it! If you haven't read it, you should. Enough said.  : )

Have a peek at what Mr. CC brought home for me today. He had to drop Miss E off at her friend's house and passed a yard sale on his way home. He spotted these two lovelies and thought I'd like them for a little project. What a Sweetie! He snagged the pair for $20. They're antiques and definitely need some TLC.

 I love the gorgeous detail on the backs. 

And check out the legs on them. Ohh la laa! 

I need to get a couple clamps and some wood glue to get them back into shape. We'll also need to cut a couple pieces of wood for the seats, both are broken. I'll probably paint them white and redo the seat cushions with some cute vintage looking fabric. We'll see. There's soo many options running through my head already. Fun, fun! 
Any suggestions?   : )

    hope your doing well!!!


  2. Your honey knows you well:) These look great!

    Oh, you will LOVE the movie The Help, I actually stayed up two nights ago watching it. So, so humorous. Now I can't wait to read ir since books are always better than the movies:)

  3. Oh Oh OH!! Those LEGS are FABULOUS...can hardly wait to see what you do to them!!

  4. No suggestions, but can't wait to see what you do with them.

  5. Wow! Your husband chose those! He is a keeper! Wish mine would do that, but he just would say it is more to clutter up the basement!
    Can't wait to see what you do!

  6. Cute chairs! What a sweet husband ;-) My only suggestion would be to find the fabric you love first, and then decide on the paint!

  7. Ahhh. such great finds. I love the vintage route. Bright aqua blue or bright red with coordinating fabrics?


  8. What a sweetie hubby you have. :)
    Love your chairs..can't wait to see how you dress them.

  9. Such a sweet hubby!!! Your chairs are going to be darling! Thanks for sharing at FNF :)

  10. These are fabulous art deco era chairs! Anything you do will look great. there are so many popular colors in the art deco period. I vote for a very pale aqua on the wood, with a peach geometric designfor the seat. Check out these sites featuring art deco colors from the 20's
    Best of luck on this project.

    You could get a host of ideas by sending them in to Debra's design challenge at common ground.
