Louis Chairs STEAL.


This girl got REAL lucky on St. Patty's day. I scored these Louis XV salon chairs at a local thrift store. They were originally $60 each but I told them I would give them $60 for both... and they did it! Holla!!!! Obvi it was because of my bargaining skills. I had a deal high so bad I almost couldn't drive home...

For anyone who needs to know, I got them from the "Little Shop Around the Corner" (great antique stores- incentive for people to come visit me in STL). The shop benefits the Missouri Botanical Garden, so I can feel good about being charitable as well :)

So now, the hard part starts. The hard part would be deciding on how I want to re-do them. There are so many options I am drawn to.

I love the glamour of neutral fabric with the wood painted GOLD.

This is as unexpected as the gold- neutral fabric, dark wood and RED piping.

I also like the idea of a printed fabric and painting the wood white or black.

And since I've been obsessing over this fabric lately, it could be the perfect place to use it??

So, I need YOUR help. What option do you all like? I know which one I am leaning toward but would love to hear your thoughts....


  1. Obsessed with the black and white striped chair!!!!!! Great find, congrats!

  2. I don't think you could go wrong with any of those options! I'm dying to know what room you're going to put them in!

  3. Laura- thanks for your vote, I think the patterned option is what I'm leaning toward doing :)

    And Kac- how silly of me! I should have posted pics, I have them in the living room!

  4. My official vote is for the pattered option. I also loved the one with red piping. Can't wait to see what they look like finished!

  5. Oh em gee!!!! LUCKY GIRL! Those chairs are to die for!!! That price is not even real, insane. I vote you do them in gold!

  7. OMG! I can't believe you found them in this condition with the cane not damaged. Amazing! I can't wait to see how you redo them.


  8. I actually JUST posted on my blog about a chair that was handed down to me by my aunt. Cane back and similar lines on the actual seat.

    I am looking forward to seeing what you decide to go with, although I am loving the different colored piping!

    Love your blog!

    xoxo, Margaret
