We, people, get attached to the other people and things around us and we simply refuse to let go. We do not want to throw them away even if they are old and bad looking. Well, the point is that you do not have to be so radical as to replace them with new items, but you can try and give them a new look. It’s like an extreme makeover, but for furniture pieces instead of houses or people. Here is an idea of how you can get A New Look for a Vintage Chair – The Maid Dress or have somebody else do this for you.
The smart and creative people from Voila! made a living of gathering pieces of textiles from all over the place – pieces of all colours and patterns – and they simply give a personal and unique style to vintage chairs, adding some unusual but beautiful accessories. This Parlour Maid Chair is the best example of what you can do with some lace and white cotton cloth.
They sell this chair for $2,925, but I am sure there are many of you who can do this by themselves at home. Just re-upholster your old chair with some black fabric and then sew a special apron and lace collar for it. The result is funny and very interesting, drawing attention and admiration.
