Vintage Cane Back Chairs in Old White

I just got home from the opening party for Loot!  I had so much fun, met so many wonderful people and made a few sales.  I even met one of my lovely, local blog followers!  Thanks for coming, Marsha :)  I will do another post after this weekend with more pictures of the shop.

In the meantime, I promised pictures of my vintage, Frenchy, cane back chairs, so here they are. To see my post about finding these chairs click here.


Just a reminder of what they looked like when I bought them:


 I know it took me a while to start working on these chairs.  I bought them in April and here it is July before I finished them!  I had to wait until I had enough money for my chalk paint order.  I did not want to sand and primer each chair.  Believe me, chairs are a lot of work!  During this project I kept saying, "I will never do chairs again!"  All the little parts make it really tedious to paint, but now that they are done....maybe I would try it again.


I painted the chairs with Chalk Paint in Old White.  I finished them with Fiddes & Sons clear wax and I like how the wax made the Old white creamier in color.  



I love how they look around Nancy's antique farm table at Loot!  


I bleached a drop cloth and reupholstered the seat cushions with it.  I was a bit worried because I did not want to do the welting cord (this project was time consuming enough already).  It worked out fine after I removed the mustard velvet and used my mom's amazing pneumatic staple gun to finish the job. No cording necessary!


I am lucky the caning on all the chairs is in such flawless condition.

 

Here is a picture the chairs in our front showroom at Loot.  


I will show you more pictures of Loot after this busy opening weekend!

Your chairs look absolutely gorgeous! I am working on six very similar chairs right now and am not enjoying it! Cane chairs are hard work! Your beautiful chairs will help motivate me to keep going!

I love those chairs, you did an amazing job on them and they look fabulous with that table. That looks like a great booth.

You mean,if you use Chalk paint you can just paint away with no sanding or priming? And it adheres to the wood? Be still my heart! I do a lot of chairs and all that prep-work is so time-consuming! I love these, btw. They are exactly what I would love in my dining room. The table too! Perfect pairing! You did a fantastic job on this redo! ~Leena~

Emily said...

OMG! Those chairs are absolutely adorable! You did a great job!

Desiree said...

The chairs look great!! I recently did a chair in that style. I wish I could find a complete set for my dining room.

Tiff said...

Congrats on your shop! Those chairs looks so amazing! I love the colour and the fabric! Chairs are hard work, I know each time I do a set I say never again! But I think it is always worth it, yours so definately were worth the trouble! They look so fantastic! X

Wow they look just gorgeous in your room love how you mixed the chairs that back in the day were prob pricey with just a wooden table just love your style!

Mona Kay at Home said...

ooohhh, they're GORGEOUS!! I hope you think they are worth every second of effort. I had to do just ONE chair for a customer recently, & I kept saying "NEVER AGAIN" as well...but I probably will :)
