Feast.

Your eyes. On these. (If you missed the before - go here)
I know...they're just chairs, but when I saw them being carried out of the upholsterer's store, my pulse began to quicken.
The details. Nailhead.
...And, the pièce de résistance, the bolster - a beautiful interpretation of my rudimentary design/idea sketch.
Paired, in their home base (Mini-me wondering why I'm photoing her eating cereal!) Do you think I need a table between them? A garden stool, perhaps, or are they too overdone?
P.S. - Hubster knocked me out this weekend - using his killer DIY skills to completely do for me help me with a project for Avery's room (Love YOU, Ben!) Deets coming sooooon!!!

Happy place feast, INDEED!

Those are practically edible they are so scruptuous looking! LOVE the smallish nail head trim...and the fabric...YUUM!

I think a garden stool would be the cats pajamas...also think they would be cool as head chairs at a long table.

ALSO....lovin' the sugar cane pickers painting...Brazilian, no doubt?
