I just redid these vintage Century Louis XV chairs for an auction.

I am donating them to benefit Volunteers in Medicine. I wanted to do something crazy but I was a little chicken.

These will be auctioned off to ladies who lunch so I kept it safe. I went with a look that I like to call Stepford in Spring.

I had the chairs painted Benjamin Moore's White Dove and ordered some of Peter Fasano's Kimoni.

Did I nail it?

I did not. Too too. I just had the upholsterer stick with the classic double welt. He loaded the chairs into my car and off I went.

I brought them home and had Merritt put them to the test.

Hoping they go for a bundle. They should.
Cause they're worth it.


  1. WOW. What a transformation!

  2. You are the best! Gorgeous, generous donation!

  3. Steppin' out there!!

    Looking robotically ravishing as a redo too!

    Hope they go for bundles!



Tell me what you really think.
