two chairs

These two chairs were both rescued from certainly unglamorous lives. The recycling process including reinforcing joints with glue and screws. The paint was covered in many layers of sealant, so they are reasonably durable. I love working on chairs because they are beautiful and functional, and allow me to use paint and fabric on one piece.

The motifs for this chair were inspired by Egyptian and Syrian art, as well as the designs of Gustav Klimt. In addition to the warm colors I used a metallic gold paint. Before I could get started painting, a new seat needed to be cut in addition to the regular repairs. The seat and back are upholstered in matching scrap fabrics.

This second chair is more my own style; I really loved the round dowels on the back. I wound up giving this to a friend in Abita Springs.
