Potential

There are times when we need to see beyond the ugly and see the potential when we are looking for particular pieces for a room. I found these matching chairs at a little antique shop, the owners had purchased them with the intent to repair, update and sell. The seats were burned, and the frame of one of broken, both need some TLC!
But,  I saw the potential in them because they were exactly what I was looking for to have in my bedroom, comfortable, great lines, beautiful wood classic chairs.
Thankfully the owner was willing to sell them "as is" and we sealed the deal!  Both seats were burned, and after I removed the seat, I realized that I needed to replace everything in the seat, including the wood. No burned wood smell in my bedroom! After the wood was cut, I found cushions to fit and then picked a material to complement my bedroom colors to cover the seat cushion. After adding a great accent pillow they are now a great addition to our master bedroom.
