makeover monday: chair before & after

By: Lauren McPhillips
It's finished. My ugly, orange-y pink chair has been given new life and has made its way home to me. On Thursday, I made my way to Carrocel Restorations to pick up the chair and when they brought it out, I was floored. It was just perfect. Not only did they reupholster it in the DwellStudio fabric I chose from Robert Allen, but they also took the entire thing apart and rebuilt it with new foam and added some piping and nailhead details. Carrocel also sprayed the wood in a Benjamin Moore white as a finishing touch. I am so beyond pleased with the work that Carrocel did and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get a piece refinished (check out their fascinating videos on furniture restoration). The quality and attention to detail is remarkable, and they kept me updated on the chair throughout the whole process. And now, without further ado, here is my fabulous new chair!

PLUS, you'll get to see what was stuffed inside! So what do you think of the final product? xo, Lauren
