I fell in blogger love with Paige for being a girl after my own heart, since she took the plunge and did the double fabric dance with these chairs. I got even more smitten when when I saw her bad-ass Flamingo inspired foyer. We kinda have a thing for Flamingos around here as well.
Loves?! It doesn't hurt that she's also funny as hell so please head on over there and show her some love.
Okay, now back to the lesson at hand.
Paige is in the midst of renovating her home and scored these fab Butterfly Wing chairs on Craigslist to go right smack in her newly renovated living room.
A good rule of thumb when using such a bold fabric choice is to add a solid fabric in the mix to help soothe things out a bit and not have your head spinning from pattern overload.
Paige did just that by adding the beige fabric on the back. But anyone seeing the chairs from the back, will also have a hint of what's to come since the Ikat fabric wraps the arms of the chair and the piping.
I think these chairs are the icing on the cake in this reno, which I should mention is equally ballsy since it involves the awesome dark wood floors shown above, pink walls, pink crown molding and pink trim. This girl loves her some pink.
Thanks Paige for sharing this awesome transformation with us.
Don't forget to send me your creative reupholstering project so I can feature it here as well.
Happy, happy almost Friday!
