Tuesday's customer inspiration - Shelli's fabulous dining room!

Welcome to Tuesday's customer inspiration and Shelli's gorgeous dining room! Both the table and all six chairs were purchased from Jubilee Furniture and all items needed some TLC - but that didn't deter Shelli! The chairs were $25 each and actually are very comfortable and well built (retro Falcon brand chairs). The table is a beautiful West Elm piece but the top was damaged.



Here's one of the chairs - as seen in the store - it has great lines (see the original post here about this donation)


Here's the table and chairs in Shelli's home pre-refinished. Great "bones," all pieces need some lovin'!


With a dark stain on the chairs, new fabric on the seats and a refinished table top (topped with glass) - Shelli turned these unrelated pieces into a cohesive and fantastic looking set!

Unfortunately, all the photos Shelli sent me didn't make it from her iphone to my computer - because I'd love to show you an up-close of one of the chairs - they really turned out beautifully. I love the darker stain and fabric Shelli selected for the seat cushions. Truly love.

Shelli purchased two more chairs - and from the looks of it could easily pull 'em up to that fabulous table - though hasn't refinished them yet (hadn't as of Friday - she's pretty amazing and might have refinished them by today! :-).

Shelli - and good friend, Tara - are regular Friday afternoon customers and both have wonderful design sense, a great eye, and the willingness to invest some sweat equity into creating beautiful spaces for their families!

Well done, Shelli and many thanks!

Tara? Your turn!

Have you purchased something from Jubilee Furniture that you've either transformed - as Shelli did - or - are using just as it is and would be willing to take a photo or two and email me at sgalbraith@outreachcommin.org so you can help inspire others? If so, that would be GREAT!

Thanks for stopping by and take care, dear reader!

Update from last Friday's post: many, many donation calls and emails have come in over the last few days - so thank you for your prayers! I'll have TONS of stuff to show you this Friday!
