This week I'll be posting about vintage treasures that I like, that I have on-hand, that I've seen around, that were passed down from grandparents...little bit of everything!
I was going to wait until I had this chair rehabbed and recovered to show you a before & after, but, since Kim at True Up is featuring yummy bark cloth this week, I'm bustin' it out for you now.
I was looking for a sitting chair to recover - clean lines and *hopefully* a mid-century, modern feel were my requirements. Hit the jackpot for $85. AND it rocks - literally, it rocks back and forth. It seems a little too much as Jack flipped over backwards one time - thank goodness for hard heads. The lady at the antique shop was aghast that I would recover this chair. Hmm. I like the pattern, but it's a bit worn and we'd like to use it not just look at it. What do you think? Maybe I could salvage the fabric for another project. You'll be seeing this one again...
Loving these dots bowls from Hazel-Atlas Glass Co., circa 1950. Once the largest glass manufacturer in the world.
Love the immediate call to another time & place with these atomic / sputnik patterns.
