make me pretty – 70s chair made modern

June 20, 2012

I know I’ve mentioned before how much I like Vienna, VA. It’s not just because my best friend lives there – it’s also because they put their big trash on the street, in front of their houses, to be picked up. Hello drive by free furniture pick up! I love it. Thank you Corbin, for scoring these awesome 70’s chairs for me! There are four but I have only re-done the first one. How much are you loving this crazy green shaggy fabric?


And after. I found this amazing fabric at ufab. I thought it was the perfect mix of vintage and modern – an updated 70’s leaf motif.

Whenever I show my husband one of my completed furniture pieces he says “Oh, it’s for a girl.” Well, I guess most of them are. I mean, I am a girl – that’s one thing. And I am very inspired by fabric, which I think is mostly designed for girls. Also, lets face it, most guys don’t really care that much about furniture.

But for all of the guys out there who are into design and for all the ladies that just aren’t really into super girly things (which is actually me, too!) this one is for you!

This was a Craigslist find (thanks Jason!) that appears to be a handmade, solid wood table. I liked the simple, clean design with the little curves on the sides to add some interest. I thought this would be the perfect piece for this pretty, graphic, almost hand-drawn fabric I found at Ufab.

Here is the before:
