Watch your back….

My WINGBACKS & CAMELBACK are BACK! I’m thrilled with the results. My husband has informed me that they are my Valentine’s present… this is the best he’s ever done (good thing I picked the furniture & fabric)! He lucked out that they just so happened to be ready today!! So, without further adieu….

the lovely Wingbacks before (circa 1982)


Isn’t she so much more beautiful now!?

And even lovelier with her pillow!

A close-up of her wing & limey green welt! 🙂

The camelback AFTER!

I’m excited to say that our house is getting much closer to completetion. Mom and I have worked tirelessly on a few projects and we’re getting closer (w/exception of those pesky bathrooms with ALL that foil wallpaper… but we’ve started them!). I’ll try to get some more before & after pictures on soon! It took us all day, 3 coats of primer & 2 coats of paint to paint the laundry room (over the foil)… I’ll put some pictures on soon! I feel like I’m about to fall over now!! Until tomorrow my friends…
ps- The orange sink in the bathroom stays for sure! I can’t wait to show befores and after of that room!
pps- Erika, I need some help with what to put on the camelback as far as pillows go… any advice!?

    Darby, those look great! Happy Valentines Day to you! I love the brown fabric – have something similar in Adam’s man-room. It’s so fun to fix things old things up…I am still looking for a good flea market up here in H-vegas. I love those places!

    Darby, your house is coming together beautifully! Those chairs are just gorgeous. I hope you are being careful around all of those paint fumes. Can’t wait to know if baby Stickler is a boy or a girl. What do you think it will be?
