For us buying anything for our home is intentional and always for a purpose. Living in a small well-curated home has simplified our lives and brings us joy. Every piece is special to who we are, where we’ve been and how we got here.
These chairs were a wedding gift that we’ve never sold or plan on selling. They not only have sentimental value but they are the inspiration for every home we’ve lived in. Even during a time when they were not physically in our home, I still found myself searching for something similar.
We recently relocated to the New England area which means I get to purge and reevaluate the quintessence of our home. Although I did love these in their authentic state, it was time for a revamp.
I thought about taking them to a professional but then I’d miss out on the opportunity to learn a new skill. I decided to give it a go and learn how to reupholster a chair. After all, it sounded and looked easy enough. I’m glad I did!
Sometimes, the easiest way to bring life back into a simple space is by changing something small. For other ideas, check out our other projects.
