DUX is complete

Filed under: craigslist, repair — mgcg @ 5:02 pm

it is finished!  our DUX chair originally owned by the Middlebrook family of Arapahoe Acres, has just received it’s reconditioned cushions from Brandt & Whitney.  The combination of the fagas straps and the new foam makes it like new again. The guys from Brandt & Whitney commented on how nice the fabric is and I couldn’t agree more.  The weave alone is outstanding, even if the color is a little faded in places.  Oh well, let the sitting and admiring begin!

the apparently popular fake brick in the kitchen nook had to get some paint on it.  so, what cate began on this wall, i finished one night.  texture is nice, but i’m glad it’s no longer mustard/black.  🙂

ikea had nothing of interest to us in the barstool height.  so i’m glad craigslist was again kind to us.  and we met a really great couple! three of these will grace the yet to be made counter in the kitchen nook.

we got some great tables from the Nines moving sale for a sweet price.  they completely restored them, but there are some slight scratches on the lacquer from sitting in their showroom for so many months.  oh well!
