i posted about this chair last week, but i thought i'd give you guys a real look at it today. i bought it at scarlett loves rhettro here in atlanta, and i'm pretty sure that it can be classified as the chinese chinoserie style (if you know what style it is, exactly, please let me know!). i'd actually been looking for something exactly like this for months, and when i saw it up in the ceiling area at scarlett loves rhettro, i knew i had to have it! i liked my old chair, and i'd even had these cushions reupholstered for it, but i decided i wanted something with no arms, and a bit more modern, in style. i used the same cushions on this chair, and they fit perfectly. (except i did take out the pillow form of the previous pillow for the back of the chair, and replace it with the shorter one that came with the new chair. i just folded the excess fabric under, and it's fine.)
it had that funky splattered '70's green paint on it, so i bought a can of spray primer (a very important step if you are trying to take something from dark to light!), and a couple of cans of yellow valspar spraypaint.
i love how shiny the "gloss" finish is. i think it looks lacquered, which is what i was hoping it would look like! i did end up selling the old chair - sans cushions :)
