Just a couple of new projects i have on the table for the next few weeks, figured i would show them off now before i get to fully work on them, maybe get some ideas from people...

If you want to see larger versions of the pics just click on them



First up, my father picked up two more 50's fans at the auction friday... i was gonna lay off the fans for a bit so i wouldn;t burn myself out on them, but he got them for a good price, and i have to admit they are pretty coold looking, i only have the pics for this one up for now, it's got real cool vintage looks, and i love the raised polished aluminum ribs on it. not sure what i'll do with them once i'm done restoring them, I may see if there is a market for them on ebay or something of the sort. any suggestions for the colors?

annnnd i got this bad boy last week that i'm going to rip apart and Re-upholster (once again, click the pics for a larger view) This is a Mid century Danish Modern Arm chair, mid 50's or so from what i can tell. It's super comfortable which is what made me decide i wanted to re-do it, and it sits low to the ground so it definatly has that laid back feel.


but i wanted to get everyones opinion of what i recover this chair with, the choices i've narrowed it down to are:

squaresfunchriscol0156 counterpointsage1083 counterpoint

So Which one do you think i should go with?

Let me know what you guys all think...

The one on the top right might go nicely with the carpeting. The circles in the pattern match the bricks (linoleum? tile?) to the right of the chair, also.

I love the yellow fabric, with the squares. Or the green spotted fabric.

I'm kinda Partial to the green spotted one myself, though the yellow and squares is a similar pattern to the shower curtain i have... still tossing it around but it's definatly between those two right now i think.

Welcome to the group btw, thanks forr joining :)
