The day that I found the antique chair that I did the love/hate slipcover on….I found another one.
Remember the love/hate slip-covered chair?
Block it out?
Well, here it is again…..
You’re welcome if you loved it.
You’re welcome if you hated it.
The same day I found that chair, I found another one.
And just so you know….
I can’t bear to paint it.
It is really old. Maybe……
I’m 100% confident that it might be old.
Ok….not 100%. Maybe like 50% confident that it MIGHT be old.
This is the engraving on the bottom of the chair.
But I canNOT figure out how old it is.
The letters in between, “Louisville and FURN CO.” are worn down.
The big US is puzzling.
New products…do they say, USA instead of US?
See that hole next to the “arm”…..I wonder if it was an old high chair?
Look at the metal around the nails. It reminds me ofÂ old “gun barrel” metal. I know that is a doofy explanation but I don’t know what it is……
So, gun barrel metal it is.
The nails and screws are definitely not modern.
I will be cleaning it more to let the patina shine through.
But I won’t be sanding it.
The legs are reinforced with the “gun – barrel – cable – thingys – metal – stuff”.
Try googling that for a reference.
It doesn’t work, by the way.
What if it is just an old Cracker Barrel chair?
I would be a dork.
I don’t think so.
I can’t be a dork……
Do you know anything about this style of chair?
Can you blame me for not painting it?
Aren’t you so excited for another version of the no-sew, bra like, overall style, long skirted slip-cover?!!!
If you aren’t.
It will be different, so don’t worry.
If you are.
It won’t be too different, so don’t worry.
I aim to please.
Any tips on the chair?
Any ideas on age?
Can’t wait to hear!
