We are excited to announce the completion of our Chromcraft set. Bill and John from B&T Upholstery did a fantastic job and we couldn’t be happier. Here are a couple of earlier posts where I wrote about this sets transformation (update 1update 2).

We were a little nervous about our fabric choice but now that the set is finished we really dig it.

The accessories look soo good with this set.

John did a fantastic job keeping the pattern lined up.

Even the Witco’s look great with it!

Of course you need more decorative glass.

I am surprised how comfortable these are. Bill used heavy duty foam to give the cushions more durability.

This will be a great area to hang out in and watch TV. I love decorating in a different style and era than I am accustom to.

I really dig the blue/green color combo of the lamps.

I am almost 6ft tall and I can actually lay down on this couch and fit!

Vintage Chromcraft Couch, Chair, Ottoman and Tables

Mel and I were contacted by our friend Tracy at m.a.r.k vintage who let us know about an available space age couch, chair and table set. We were so excited to hear this and I shot over early the next day to get them.

The couch, chair and ottoman are in good shape but I plan to recover them. The fiberglass on these pieces is thick and durable.

This is the coffee table, end table and planter that came with the set.

The fiberglass has the usual yellowing from being exposed to sunlight for some time.

Restoring the fiberglass is simple. All I have to do is light sand all the pieces once the upholstery is removed. After I sand everything,  I’ll need to wipe it down really well to remove any particulate. I plan to use the Rust-Olum white appliance paint to restore the fiberglass. I love this paint because it is durable and finishes well.

Surprisingly, there are no real issues with any of the fiberglass except the yellowing.

Our intention was to fix this set up for resale…BUT…you hardly ever see pieces like this, so we’ve decided to keep it……. for now.

We are thinking of doing our office in the Panton Era so these will fit right in.

Here is what the set looks like new.

It appears they also made a dinning set! Beam me up Scotty!

I’ve always thought this was hilarious!
