Here at gracie b. we tend to enjoy the simpler things in life and take great pride in finding beauty in items that would have otherwise been headed for a trash heap. Over the last several weekends I've spent a significant amount of time getting my office reorganized and decorated to properly reflect the gracie b. aesthetic.
My first project was this chair, a $15 find at a local thrift store that now serves as a beautiful place to sit. I truly wish I had a picture of the way it originally looked to show how worn down this chair was. The frame was a nicked and scratched oak color, with a dingy blue seat cushion. It did take a little sweat and perseverance, but after some sanding and primer, several spray cans of white lacquer and a trip to JoAnn's to find this beautiful blue and green lattice fabric, suddenly an unloved chair becomes a beautiful piece of furniture!
At some point I would LOVE to incorporate a home decor section into the shop... but I have to remind myself that Rome was not built in a day :) For now, here are a few wonderfully revived items currently in the shop! Happy Shopping!
