Renewing and Reusing

We had two old upholstered cane chairs and decided it was time for some renewal.

They were painted BM Cloud White and we had them professionally recovered in buffalo-check fabric I purchased at Joanne Fabrics. The upholsterer was quite proud of how he matched the checks in his tufting.

I do love buffalo checks and anything in BLUE!

Right now we have them in our dining room for extra seating, but they also can be used in our family room downstairs.
