Happy Campers: Angela and Mr. Blue

3 Feb

So Angela has been reading Mimomito for many moons – since the beginning! Whoa! That’s only like 5 months, but still! It excites us to have such great readers! We met Angela at the Mimomito meetup, and she told us about a chair she bought after seeing on Mimomito. She was kind enough to send in photos of a once sad little chair I had posted back in September, that she had purchased and cleaned up immensely. A chair I had dubbed Mr. Blue. I became attached to the chair because he was only $40.00, had a cute little shape, and the saddest spray painted black legs I had ever seen. I just really wanted someone to buy and sit in him.

Here is what Mr. Blue looked like in his Craigslist ad..

And here he is in Angela’s home! Here’s what she had to say about him:

As promised, here are some pictures of Mr. Blue who was on your page last summer.
We had the chair reupholstered at Robles Upholstery in Woodland using Herman Miller turquoise boucle fabric from Winterbeach Modern ( http://www.winterbeachmodern.com ).
My husband stripped the paint on the legs and finished it in a walnut stain.

Thanks again, Angela! To anyone else who has seen something on Mimomito and then purchased it, please please let us know!

    winterbeachmodern is a great source for fabric. There are also quite a few eBay sellers who undercut retail by, oh, 90%. Always bring your own fabric to the upholsterer. They may raise foam or labor prices to make up some of what they lose, but you’ll still come out ahead.

    Angela (if you see this) – Where did you get the upholstery done? I’m looking for a place around town to do some similar work.

      Hey there! The upholstery was done at Robles Upholstery in Woodland, 1111 Gibson Rd. 530-406-1106. He is really fast and I’m always pleased with the results. Prices are very reasonable.
      Good Luck,
