  1. Houndstooth for the Eck Adams chairs – easy…you could go with a pink or navy or bright green – masculine possibly but also fun. What about a heavy oilcloth for the kitchen set? Not nearly $45+ a yard for that! The settee has got to go…way, way too much work.

    • I’ve been thinking about getting rid of that settee for a while but for some reason, I would really like to tackle it… We’ll see how that goes. I’ve been looking at oil cloths online and haven’t been able to find one that has that atomic 50’s feel while still mainly white. Have you ever done a settee like that one?

  2. These are all great finds! I wish I had something helpful to contribute but I can see why you’re stumped. There are so many different directions you could go with each piece! I’ll let you know if I think of any brilliant ideas to share. 🙂

  3. i love the dinette set i had a set and busted my ass getting the chrome and upholstery clean but it didn’t have a leaf i live with my kid her hub and 2 grandsons ages 1 and 2 we couldn’t fit around the table so i had to sell it i cried, as for the chairs have you tried good will and old men’s suits? the settee go for a bold geometric it’s the new thing or a boho look i bet it would sell quickly xx

  4. I love seeing behind the scenes stuff like this! I have a project to-do list a mile long and finally sat down to finish an advent calendar I started last year–oops! Maybe it will be ready in time for this year 🙂 Love that midcentury set!

  5. I need to get organized. I just have crap scattered everywhere. Something about seeing a to do list makes it all seem more manageable!! Also excited to see that settee get some Dena magic. I have my eye on one at the Restore that would need all new springs, etc. but it’s SO interesting that I’m kinda tempted. Let the cursing begin. xx
