Who likes mustard? Me, me, me!!! (hand raises). How about some mustard velour? Yeppers, see the abomination below....
You know what they say: What's one person's mustard, yellow velour is another person's...um, project? Yes, mine. All mine. I found this beauty in one of my favorite consigment shops in the 'Must Go' section. I paid next to nothing. Sadly, the '70s fabric and the awful speckled, cheap wood met their demise at my hands.
I stripped the sucker down. The hot mustard velour met it's soul-mate in the form of a sturdy, and perfectly nice green plastic trashbag...and they lived happily never after. A little sweat, sanding, priming, painting, etc. later, and we arrive here...
Some details of the nice lines and carvings on the chair.
Attention mustard fans, it's looking a lot better now, agree? I am loving this chair, and an added bonus -- it's super comfortable. Unfortunately it sits hidden and naked in my closet (please excuse the mess) because I cannot decide on a place, nor a material for it. Sugestions?
I'd like to do something similar to what I did with my dining room chairs. A nice neutral stripe or suede on the front and some fabulous silk chinoiserie on the back. See dining room chairs:
Look out for a final photo when this baby finds a home. Until then, I'll take my mustard on the side please. Ketchup anyone?
