I Just Couldn't Stay Away...

Today I just happened to be driving in the vicinity of Kepler's, the upholstery shop which is working on the Auction Slipper Chairs. So do you think I could pass up the opportunity to take a look?! Of course not. A stop to view the progress was a must.

The work was scheduled to begin yesterday, and it is always a good idea to touch base when a job...any in progress. If there's a problem, or a difference of opinion about the direction of the work, it's much better to catch it earlier rather than later!

Just one surprise was waiting. Another layer of fabric, a burnt orange brocade, had been hiding beneath the lovely floral. Is it possible that at one point the chairs looked even worse than they did when I found them?

The verdict: the workmanship looks great, the fabric is gorgeous and according to Marvin, is very durable and great to work with. So I left the shop happy. How would you have felt seeing a pair of your chairs in this state of flux...Excited? Frightened?!


  1. I would be excited, for sure! :) I cannot wait to see how they turn out! They look great already - LOVE that fabric!

  2. looking good! what are you doing with the other chair? I love these chairs.

  3. There is an empty corner in the family room that is waiting for one these chairs to be brought home! How is the painting project coming along? :)

  4. I don't think I like the color for my kitchen (SW sands of time). I'm going for a look like yours because I HEART your kitchen! but since my kitchen is the size of your thumb, I don't know where to start!


Now I Would Love To Hear What You Think!
