I recently undertook a very creative project to revamp a useful piece of furniture into a work of art. Taking an old item of furniture and breathing new life into it, recycling what's practical, and even fun: transforming furniture enables us to revive our interiors without costing the world. Take a dash of technical skill and a pinch of inspiration, and then let yourself be directed by the furniture itself.
There is no one, 'right' way to revamp objects. Each piece with its past history, imperfections and priceless status, is the starting
point for thinking about how to transform it in a way that will make it
unique! In this case a small dining table set the stage for a total transformation.
These round tip chair are covered with a chocolate spandex chair covering. This material is great for chairs of all sizes and shapes due to it's durable material it stretches beyond all. The spandex material is also very comfortable and machine washable. Saving further wear and tear on your chairs while adding sleek style in a new look.
This round glass top table is covered with a chocolate polyester table cloth. The durable fabric makes clean up easy and gives a bold statement piece look to the dining area. For this table size, we are using a 120 inch cloth that does drape to the floor. Although in this picture it is tucked inside the first ring under the glass of table.
This yellow satin trimmed sheer overlay drapes down the edges of the chocolate tablecloth. It not only adds a soft shimmer of light to the dark undertow of the table but also adds a formal and whimsical dimension as the swirls seem to be floating glamorously across the table. 72 inches in length it falls just above the seat.
These chocolate pin tuck placemats are an astonishing visual contrast to the overlay and folded to reflect he light most vibrantly. Each place mat is 15 by 20 inches and are essential for fine china or crystal flutes for that special dinner. For a more sophisticated look.
For those occasions where your guests are less sophisticated and would rather have chicken wings on paper plates then braised beef on fine china these crimson yarn and wire placemats add a splash of color to the setting and are also very functional as they can act as a barrier between the offensive wing and the delicate chocolate pin tuck placemat. It fits perfectly over the placemat to give room for not only dining attire but also drinks and napkins.
