face lifts...
i love it and i know many of you do to, on once beloved chairs that is!

nothing brings to life a great framed louis iv's chair than a new coat of paint and a stunning piece of fabric. i just love taking old abandoned chairs and making them look new again, or old chairs look old still but great!
