Modern Classic

I saw her at the thrift store. She didn't stand out much, but I had a vision for her. 

 She had great lines. Great curves.



But she looked tired. She needed a facelift.




Her seat, once a pretty needlepoint, was scratched and ripped.




Here is my vision completed:


She got refreshed with a couple of coats of ASCP French Linen, clear wax and dark wax.


The dark wax really accentuates the lines and the curves.

Her needlepoint seat got recovered with a fresh, modern fabric.



The needlepoint is still there underneath, a nod to her past, perhaps to be rediscovered and recovered in another era, when she needs another facelift.






Everything old is new again.

Don't you wish it was that easy to look young once again?
