A while ago I posted about these two Louis XV style armchairs that I found in the exact condition as in the photo.
I haven’t forgotten about them…. They are still a work in progress, so I thought I would post a photo showing what I have done so far. I sanded them, glued them, raised the seat…. you name it, I had to do it! They are now lacquered a light shade of blue-gray that picks up a color found in the back rest (the back of the chair has been reupholstered with the same fabric as the seat). As you can surely tell, the chairs are still missing the finishing touches, those details that really do make the difference and are, in my opinion, the most important part of any makeover. I will soon post the finished project and let you know when they will be for sale.
