Starting the Details: Inherited Chair

Updating a Classic - Again

As we wind up a big project here at 173, we're at that details stage.  Today I finished the Inherited Chair. Nah, don't get too's not Bauhouse or Stickley or anything like that.  When we moved into the house there were a few things left in the house by the family of the previous owners.  In view of the fact that one of the granddaughters is one of my dearest friends, and also due to me being a bit of a sentimentalist, I've endeavored to try to incorporate most of what was left into the current iteration of the good ol' 173 (even down to what we call the house!).

One of the things left behind was what could only be an old kitchen chair.  Not the table, not a set of chairs...just one chair - perfect!  It was painted yellow at the time and looked well-used, so when the porch was originally re-done, I painted it a flat red just to add a little pop of color to the porch.

Well, in preparation for the impending reveal (maybe another week or so), Inherited Chair got another makeover of its own:

I have a lousy cell phone camera, so I can't really get a good shot, but click on the picture and look close, you'll see a couple little touches that will be clues to the future reveal! See ya soon!
