Just like last year, I’m donating a chair for the Louisiana Children’s Museum CHAIRish the Children event. The theme this year is the funky 1970’s! So fun! My initial instinct was disco balls and afro wigs but I decided to go a different avenue. I always like to incorporate a green eyed gator because the donation is coming from the gallery. So I did a gator head on top of a 70’s inspired floral print. I ordered some faux gator fabric off of etsy and upholstered seat of the chair with it. I hammered some brass tacks around the whole base. I’m really, really happy with it! It’s one of those pieces I finished and then just wanted to keep for myself.
So there it is! I dropped it off yesterday in time for it to be showcased during White Linen Night. The event is on August 23rd. It was a blast last year and so I’m looking forward to this year’s party!
