Chippy Chairs

I like nothing better than finding a vintage piece with its original chippiness. 
 I not only found one naturally weathered chair, but two.   
The first one was nothing more than a frame when I found it. 
 I added some animal print fabric and it fits perfectly next to my
 equally chippy frenchy desk and column.

The desk and column next to it are equally chippy.

A closer look at the fabric and chair carving.

I love the carved flower detail.

More carving on the arm.

The back is just as lovely as the front.
