Followers of my facebook page will have already seen a sneak peek of these in their former incarnation.
This is a pair of old cinema seats that I managed to pick up from Second Chance reclamation centre in Baltimore. I saw them whilst I was searching for something to use for my New York decoupage chair http://colonialcravings.wordpress.com/2014/08/18/vintage-new-york-decoupage-chair/
I managed to resist buying them at the time but spent the following week persuading Mr Colonial Cravings that they would be a great addition to our little house in Gloucestershire. It’s the biggest up-cycling project that I’ve undertaken but I think it was worth all the effort (and occasional cursing.) The plush green velvet gives them quite a vintage look, definitely an improvement on their original grey and pink 1980’s style!
