A month (or so) ago on one of my op-shop trips I found these awesome old mid century chairs, made by iconic Australian designers, Burgess Furniture. Whilst an ugly duckling in their 80's grandma renovated fabric, I could see the potential in them immediately (with a little TLC).
Out came the steel wool, turps and linseed oil. A bit of elbow grease later you can see the difference in timber colour with a bit of love (left one un-renovated and right one with a scrub 'n oil!)
The final step was to recover and voila, fancy new (old?) retro chairs.
I still don't know where I'm going to house them but once the downstairs reno is finished, I'm thinking that I'll find a good spot for them there.
Today the kids and I are vegging out at home with some movies. Actually that's a lie, the kids are watching movies. I'm re-inspired to get my "ferment on" after reading the new Simplicious book by Sarah Wilson. I got a bit slack over the Winter months but with Spring in the air, I'm feeling motivated again.
PS, the book is fab, it's like she wrote it for me!
