70's Chunky Wood Chairs....FINALLY!

Hello Hello,

FINALLY....is all I can say about these chairs!! I received them over a year ago from  a friend, THANK YOU Candace! 
Their story is....The Calgary Rotary Club had owned these chairs and put them in storage in the early 1990's and last year cleared out the storage unit. I saved them from the dump!! 
They had matching side tables. I renewed the side tables and a gal with fabulous taste bought them and uses them as nightstands. You can see the post showing the renewed nightstands HERE.



Typical 70's style, chunky wood set....I remember my parents had this sofa set and it had brown/gold corduroy-ish material on the cushions! 


I sent them to the sprayer, he painted them an off white, and there they sat for just under a year!!

Then my prayers were answered......a sewing fairy came into my life, THANK YOU JODI P!!
I picked the fabric from Ikea....YES, Ikea!!! They have some beautiful fabric now, and my sewing fairy made the cushions and covered the pillows!

Ta Da...



I gave them some of my popping Shabby Style and thought this Beauteous Grey with White Roses Fabric was a perfect match! I admire the comfy factor of these giant chairs and I wanted to keep that feeling, so I went with two huge snugly pillows on the backs of the chairs instead of another cushion.


Here is a closer picture. Believe me these chairs are as comfy as they look!
They turned out Spectacular!

Bye Bye Butterfly!
