VICTORIAN CHAIR

I have two Victorian chairs, another yard sale
find a few years ago. They did not look like
this when I purchased them they were in need
of a lot of work. My husband cleaned up the
wood part. I had an upholsterer recover them
in a mauve colored velvet. They look great
and he did a beautiful job. I will not let any
of my grandchildren even near them let alone
sit in them. The crochet piece on the back of
the chair was my grandmothers. The table
is also an old piece (another yard sale find).

That is a lovely little nook. You both did good work. No cheese curls, please!

Thank you Laura. Deann would never let her boys into that room with cheese curls.

Oh Madeline, it looks so beautiful. I love the color upholster you chose for your chair. It just all came together so nicely. It's all just beautiful. Enjoy your day!

Oh, I know she wouldn't let them in there with food. I was just yanking your chain!
