Our Vintage Art Deco chairs are going to look fab in this new striped fabric…IF I don’t destroy them in the upholstery process!
Note: Most of the products listed (including the striped fabric from Milton and King) are sponsored. I appreciate the support of my sponsors, and together we are teaming up to bring you unique design ideas. The opinions are 100% my own
New Year New Room Refresh
A huge shout out to Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living for organizing this awesome New Year New Room Challenge. I am dying to see her bedroom reveals next week btw.

Striped Fabric Chair Plan
Chairs BEFORE stripe fabric
I scored these vintage chairs this summer and have been squirreling them away in the basement ever since. I love the fun lines, but the dirty red velvet isn’t doing anything for me. Time for a (hopefully) quick reupholstery job.
The Stripe Fabric Plan
During that time I used the Ritz base on my lucite stools.
For the basement, however, I am making a concerted effort to use budget friendly options… my client is a teenage girl after all. This time I decided to go for the Cavalry vs the Ritz. I’m not going to lie, the Ritz is more luxurious, but the Cavalry rates 161,250 rubs (Wyzensbeek) so it should likely withstand Armageddon. ?
It feels great to be basically finished with the kitchenette?. One of my favorite elements to this vignette is the beautiful handles from Liberty Hardware. I love the Asian influence and thought they would tie in nicely with the green dining chairs.
Wallpaper is UP!
I love the top secret Milton and King wallpaper and I can’t wait to show it to you next week in the reveal! It’s a graphic paper that feels very youthful/fun…and my daughter loves it.
I have some fabulous lighting to hang in the next few days. I’ll make sure to write-up a couple of blog posts before then!
I think I have a busy week ahead of me. Fingers crossed that I can upholster two chairs, and style the room in time!
Rip out old nasty carpet Build toy room under stairs Build closet in adjacent bedroom -Finish Hanging Metrie Moulding -Install new TOP SECRET Milton and King wallpaper on upper half of the walls
