meranda-s-52meranda-s-71I found these pair of chairs at an auction in Virginia.  As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to have them.  It was then figuring out what to upholster them with.  I found some really stunning fake leopard fur at the Goodwill, I had been saving for some time, and wanted to use on a piece I wasn't going to eventually get rid of.  When you have a furniture piece you really love, you want to upholster it with the best that you have.  Check out my post on Faux Walnut Burl Painting, and it will describe how I accomplished this faux look.   The upholstery is not complete, but good enough until I move, and have the time to finish the edging.  I am not crazy about the gold, and I may paint that a swedish beige that is distressed somehow.  All in all, it works.  I really wanted some impact, but after reflection I possibly would have choosen a different fabric with the burl.  No time to change it now....  although, it will be a big statement in a room with lots of ornate details...  Let me know what you think.  ~Meranda
