Baroque? More like BaROCK!

Baroque? More like BaROCK!
It’s Friiiiday, friiiiday, gotta get down on Friiiiidaaaaay!” Argh! Curse you and your inane song, Rebecca Black!

Sorry. Don’t listen to that song, it will get stuck in your head for three days straight. You will hear it in your sleep. And you will weep for mankind, because mankind has horrible taste in “music” and has downloaded this song like 3 million times. ~shivers~

Anyway, let’s talk before and afters: Chiara had this overly ostentatious baroque chair. She was not feeling that nursing home drapery upholstery, so she took it to opposite end of the fabric spectrum: geishas, skulls and snakes. Badassery at it’s finest. Sure, not everyone’s cup of tea, but I highly favor a little hardcore edge vs. pretty, predictable and profoundly lame. (I’m talking to you, Rebecca Black).

See more on her blog Extreme Makeover Barock. (in italiano) Thanks Chiara!

    I listened to Rebecca Black, posted on Facebook and got into a verbal match about it. Please everyone, learn from my mistake – don’t listen to that song!

    The fabric choice on the chair is pure genius.

    We so excited…Ugh! It’s your fault it’s stuck in my head again!

    Skulls are definitely not my thing, but this chair is awesome.

    I’ve been reading this blog for months, and although I’ve been amazed and astounded at the talented people who are featured, this is the FIRST project that moved me to comment. WOWZA! I know at least 3 teenage girls who would kill to have this in their room! Perfect blend of paint and fabric!

    Oh this is SICK! (In a good way!) I love it! I am sure it could have been lovely in gloss white with an amazing fabric but this is so edgy – wicked cool. Nice job.

  15. March 27, 2011 / 3:42 PM
