My Louis

Hello! It's a new year and life has gotten super busy. My Louis XVI chairs have been collecting dust in my kitchen but now I have good news. I start my upholstery class on Monday and I am beyond excited! I've been waiting patiently and now I will finally learn how to re-upholster my beloved Louis.

I still haven't figured out what kind of finish I want for the wood. I've stripped the paint off 2 chairs and right now I'm thinking of going with a whitewashed look, letting some of the natural wood grain show. There are endless fabric options but I'm kind of torn between a bold pattern or a classic neutral. Any thoughts?

Another neutral fabric. Restoration Hardware style...

Given that I love classics but also an eclectic mix of styles, I'm definitely leaning towards 2 of the above options. I'd love to hear what you think!
