Designed on a Dime!

Boy, oh boy have these chairs been one heck of a transformation! I don’t even recognize them anymore, which is just the way I like them. Hehe. The chairs were original a designer piece that just became outdated over time. They were out at a garage sale but never sold. Everything at the end of the day was being donated, but I was able to snag them away right in the knick of time for dirt cheap. The pair didn’t look like much, but I had a vision!

One of the perks of working for an Interior Design company is already knowing several people around the area in the industry! So I knew exactly who to turn to in order to make my idea a reality! Repinned! No questions asked. Riana is so incredibly patient and knowledgable. When I came in for my fabric consultation I was all over the place. I had no vision, just knew what I didn’t want. She helped work through all of the options to find the best one for my chairs. Riana listened to all my concerns and gave some amazing recommendations. To this day I am still amazed by the Crypton fabric. The number of times that something has been spilled on them is frightening, but they clean right up! It is incredible!

Again, being in this industry I already knew that there was going to be a fairly long wait. Once I gave my deposit to secure my spot on her list, it was about a 6-9 month wait. The waiting sucked, but is worth the wait! Once Repinned picked them up to get started, I had them completed and back in about a week’s time.

I am IN LOVE with the end result! The back is such a fun pop of color and pattern while the front is a simple solid that meshes great with the other tones of the room. However, my favorite part of this entire experience…the extra pillows that Riana threw in from the extra chair fabric. How thoughtful!
