The perfect make-over

My grandfather has a houseful of absolutely stunning furniture that I would love to eventually refurbish (he is all for it as well). Last year, Mr. Big and I went up to get some creative ideas, but I was falling flat on coming up with the right solutions.

Design*Sponge featured a before/after makeover on an Eames chair that exactly captures what I have been looking to do. There are loads of spots in the house for sitting chairs, small desks, etc. Didn't Non-Fiction Design Collective do a fantastic job on this chair?

The neutral fabric with a bit of texture is playful, but a tad elegant at the same time. Mom, we're going to have to put our thinking caps back on again...
