Good Bones with a Lotta Heart

My client's bedroom is still four to six weeks from full installation. But...I just had to share this sweet little candy-cane treat with you that is sure to be The statement piece when you walk into her room.
These theatre seats are going to be for a young gal who lives, eats, and breathes theatre. She's fifteen, hip, stylish and fun.
When I found these conjoined twin seats at the local flea market, they were in green muckiness form with a whole lotta rags-to-riches potential.

Statement Piece: (It's the one thing that I build a room around and it's usually where I start the process) What does a statement piece have to have for me? For me, it must have great bones aesthetically and structurally. Unusual or uncommon lines in a piece can really add to the Wow Factor that every room needs and should have. Coincidentally, these theatre seats not only have a distinct and unusual frame, but they also happen to have great meaning and symbolism for my client as well...which makes this an even stronger personal statement piece for my client. ( I call this good bones with a lotta heart). I cannot wait for the moment she walks in to see these chairs in her finished bedroom!

I decided to lacquer them in a high gloss white to make them more current day/modern. The red velvet was found at a local wholesale fabric store and then I used my great upholsterer who always does a superb job for me!

I now need to top off this post with a run to the coffee ethic to grab something else that has my heart. I'm needing one of their lovely lattes. Please take a moment to read about their sweet renewal and reusing ethic... even if you don't live here, it's worth the stop. They definitely fall into the category of good bones with a lotta heart! Currently they are in the works to open up shop in other larger cities.

Have a lovely start to your week!

x's and o'sies,

Those theatre seats are really beautiful and unusual - well done! I'd built a whole snug around them.
