Not any more!!!
The inside is lined in gold/bronze velvet...and its old, and looks very cool with the metallic tones being painted on the outside.
The plan is to make it look sort of "Art Deco"...but not in an historical reproduction way, since its not an Art Deco piece of furniture.
I am having a great time working with the metallic (as ever!) and with the textures.

The theme is seashells, and based on the colours in floor and cushion fabric, ''underwater'' seemed a good place to put them....
Here you can see the tile and fabric sample I have to work from. (Actually, the fabric isn't really as brown as it looks in this picture...)
See the ''eyes" inside the clam??

Here you can see the fabric being painted on the work table, and then in use, upholstered onto 4 lovely chairs.
This is another piece, slightly darker in the backround,with bright pinks and deep greens....
This is bluer, in over all tone....
What a great kitchen!

Many of the geometric patterns I had intended for backs of bird pillows turned out so well, I made them into fronts too, and painted subsequent simpler backs for them. These geometric pillows make very good complimentary, or accessory pillows for the more elaborate feature pillows. (ie: birds, in this case.)
For now......Bye Bye Birdie. Next project? A few pieces of fabric yardage to replenish my inventory.....
