The rococo chair

Some of you may know my love towards the rococo furniture as I've told here on my blog many times how I dream of the house furnished by 18th-century decor. Well I took a step to closer that beautiful century when I found these lovely rococo chairs in July. Two similar chairs cost together seventy euros and they were in a really good condition. Not high price to my mind for most similar chairs cost much more. 

And before someone wonders these chairs didn't look this when I got them. They were both covered with ugly yellow fabric and they were brown.  I veiled and painted and there is still another one waiting for the new cover. It most likely will be different as the striped one.  I didn't have any kind of experience of veiling so this was a jump into unknown, but I'm quite proud of myself. It turned out much better as I assumed and I had fun meaningful experience. I have always loved different DIY projects and even if I don't own skills for something I'm eager to learn them. According to a seller these are at least fifty-years-old, but can be even older. I'm not an expert of antique so please tell your opinion if you have more knowledge. 

I already dream of a rococo sofa and table, but so far my black velvet divan beats it for its comfort. But it would be interesting to do more veiling projects in the future.
