The Angus Chairs - Custom Refinish Before & After

Before These chairs went from a blonde white washed finish to an elegant creamy white.

After
Take a look at the details at the top of the legs. They were lightly sanded so the lines popped.
I love the decorative shape of the backs on these chairs. They are so unique and graceful.
I am not certain what fabric will cover the seats but I think anything will compliment the creamy white beautifully.
Remember one of my upcoming projects will be to pull different white chairs around my barnwood table. Well I wish one of these were mine. I think they are lovely and I know that my project is not happening any time soon but these chairs sure inspire me to try and get it to happen sooner. We hope that B and J are happy with the results!

That Baroque style is one of my favorites for chairs and those are especially charming with the crown motifs on the back. Great job in recoloring. Natural linen would be super elegant or a hip print with central motif for the seats (a la Anthropologie).

I love these chairs. The style and the way you've painted them. Is Angus a line of furniture? I noticed the dresser from yesterday is also Angus.

Chris said...

Oh how I love everything you guys touch. It's never a disappointment! Can one ever go wrong with creamy white paint on a chair? It's just perfect!
