upcycling my oma & opa’s chair

before & after Studio Elsbeth

This chair belonged to my grandparents. They got 4 of those at the end of the 50’s Their house had burned down and there was nothing left. A lot of furniture they got from friends but I believe that they had bought these brand new. I’ve always loved these chairs. Maybe because of the memories of being with my oma and opa. They are beautiful chairs, which only became more apparent when I started sanding them down. It was a pleasure transforming this chair into an Alice in Wonderland chair!

….down the rabbit hole!
