How about RL paint Brompton Gray with Oxford Brown or Wenona Brown accented wall in bedroom facing woods? My best, John

I have fallen in love with your blog...I always want to repurpose old pieces I see at thrift stores but I never really know how. You are so inspiring! I can't wait to try my first project (most likely will be based at least loosely on one of yours!) :)

I love these neoclassical armchairs , very good pieces at good price

Hi Eddie, Came across your site via the Martha Stewart site. Oh no, another blog that I'm going to get hooked on! I love it already, great ideas, love your sense of style. Look out local flea markets, here I come!!

I don't know how I missed this post before. The chairs turned out amazing. I put mirrors in my fireplace twenty some odd years ago. I had a light that I attaced to the handle of the flue[sp?] and put a fern for my spring look. We are planning on putting a faux fireplace in the living room/library in the near future and I plan on using the same treatment again. Yours looks absolutely perfect and the chairs in the front of the fireplace look wonderful. You have the eye for good, classic style and the ingenuity on how to achieve it without spending way too much. You keep it fresh and new but still traditional and classic. Hard to do for most but not EDDIE. You're great!! Kathysue

Wow those chairs look AMAZING! You are such an inspiration!!!

Ok, I'm in love with the mirrored back of the fireplace, but the transformation of these chairs is quite nice. The color is terrific. Your layering is beauiful (the zebra atop the sea grass) and your editing - well, professional is the only word that comes to mind.

Eddie - Another question - do you recommend semi-gloss or gloss for the Ralph Lauren paint you used on the chair. Thanks so much. :)

Hi Eddie - Question about your rug - where did you buy it?? Your makeovers are inspiring!

Did you prime the chairs before you painted them? I'm in the planning stage of bringing back to life a pair of Louis XVI cane-backed side chairs. Love the way your chairs came out! I'm cheering for you on Top Design, my money's on you, good luck!!!

these are gorgeous!
