      So I’m moving to a new apartment, and I really want to make a cool work area for my boyfriend, since he gave me our only deskspace in our current apartment, and let me turn it into a makeup area. I found this awesome desk, and I want to put some marble foil on the glass to make it fit perfectly into the general livingspace.

      I have this horrible looking chair that my grandfather gifted me when we moved in. It’s old but I really like the style of it, so I want to revamp it. I just don’t really know how I want it to look. Do you have any ideas? I want to paint and reupholster it.

      The colorscheme in the livingroom is grey, warm pink, mixed metals and marble. I want it to fit overall, and with the table specifically.

        Hey Marie!

        Thank you so much for posting and for all your awesome responses in the forums! Love it!

        I love the bones of this chair, it actually works really well with the style of desk you have! Since your color palette isn’t too colorful to begin with, I would keep the paint and fabric choices for the chair neutral. This way, if you ever decided to redecorate with a different color scheme, it will still fit!

        I think a nice white or charcoal grey could look good as a paint color, and then a durable, easy-t0-clean fabric with a tone on tone pattern would look really nice. I’m a big fan of velvet on chairs like that!

        Hope this helps! Excited to see how the chair turns out, make sure to post pics!
