Caned Chair Set Find....Shabby Chic Couture Darcy Like

Hello everyone....
Just another one photo (actually two) post this morning, and hooking up with White Wednesday....something that I don't get to do very often with crazy busy stuff around here! 

I wanted to share this chair that I found on Craigslist with you. Actually I found a complete set of six, and was up at our beach place at the time. I only had my small car up there and once I purchased them rented a van the next day to pick them up! I know that you bloggers will understand why, KEEPERS:-). They are vintage Thomasville, really well made high quality and priced to say...SCORE!

Today I'm going to be working on finishing sewing up some slips for the seats in a yummy off white Belgian washed linen. The seats themselves actually have that French script on them...but I'm going for a softer look. Here is one of the chairs with my slip...
And here is a Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture Darcy Chair...which I adore and is available on her website.....
Have a beautiful day....
