 I'm working on these babies this week:

Don't you just love their pinky gold goodness??

I scored them on Craigslist last week after searching on and off for a pair of chairs all summer. 

My grand master plan is to reupholster them using this great tutorial. With some pointers from this tutorial.
And a whole lot of my typical flybytheseatofmypantsandjustfigureitoutandDOIT. 
Pinterest (oh pinterest, how do I love thee) has been great for finding and storing my inspiration for these chairs. Here are a few I've pinned:

I had a hard time trying to decide on a fabric.. I LOVE the fun prints some of these chairs have, and I'm also really drawn to the simple white upholstery. But after choosing a white slipcovered glider for Evie's room, I'm definitely NOT going that route again. 

I'm a little more than halfway done taking apart the first chair, which means I've removed approximately 637 staples. Gah.

Hopefully I'll have some progress to show you soon! I can't wait!
