Now this is beautiful. Definitely my kind of chair.

Wow! You really give new meaning to "Flea Market Flip"! I love the bright pinks and purples. Also, the black & white striped fabric that you used really adds that nice pop to the chairs, without making it look too overpowering. The Reclaimed Wood contest is going on right now, so try entering this into the contest, and I'll wish you the best of luck!
