And the color we choose is…Turquoise! Yay! Admittedly, the color choice wasn’t easy, there were so many options!
For those of you that follow us on Instagram @warehousecollective we posted this “before” pic for color ideas. Remember?
We purchased this chair at the Long Beach Swap Meet. Although we loved the “patina”, the actual idea of sitting on all that rust was a bit off-putting. Also, we LOVE to powder coat old furniture. It is, in our opinion, like giving a second life to what otherwise might be trash. So after the instagram color ideas came flooding in, it was off to the powdercoater for the color chart.
After choosing the color, we left it to the pros. We got the call when it was done, picked it up, and it exceeded our expectations. It’s beautiful! Can’t wait for this “new” chair to find a home at our upcoming show, Remnants of the Past.
Here are some fun before and after photos:
Although “traditionally” this was an outdoor chair, and the new powdercoating means it would be GREAT to use outside for many years to come, we like the idea of using it indoors. Here the chair is shown with our Solid Wood Block Table, custom made and for sale in our Etsy Store.
Here is another example where we used a similar chair (this one is orange though!) as an occasional chair in the guest bedroom of our Industrial Cape Cod project.
