Michele from Shelstring refurbished these chairs to give them a Parisian flair with a touch of Vanilla Frosting!

I went to pick up a table from a seller on Craigslist and while I was there, she mentioned she had a couple chairs to sell as well. For $15 more, I brought this pair home.

They are pure oak and to be honest, I debated painting them for awhile. They had that natural antique look and I contemplated just changing out the cushions and calling it good.

One day, I got a wild hair and while painting some other pieces already, just threw them into the queue, giving them each 2-3 coats of Vanilla Frosting.

The cushions still had to go!

I kept buying different fabrics for these chairs and was never really happy with the way they looked. Until I found this monogram french script fabric at Hobby Lobby.

I think I’m obsessed with distressing, cause I can’t seem to help myself. I love the way it looks! It tends to bring out the lines and details of furniture, which I think is the real character of any piece.

I love the way the set looks with my freshly painted marque table and king’s crown.
