Hair on Hide Chair Makeover (video tutorial & leather giveaway)

I found a Craigslist steal last summer. A woman was advertising a vintage dining table and china cabinet but the photo clearly showed top quality mid century modern furniture. I jumped on it and snatched them up right away. The table came with 6 chairs but we keep just 4 around it and 2 have been sitting in the basement. Until now.

Hair on hide has inspired me lately.

I recovered the chairs with hair on hide leather. 

The chairs are lovely. I love the blend of Mid Century Modern and the hair on hide.

Our living room is fairly bare but I love the clean feel. With 4 kids, you get “clean” where you can take it.

I can’t figure out exactly where I like those newly recovered chairs.

Couches, yellow chair and chair on right: Thrive Furniture
Gray knitted blanket: from Grandma
Chairs on left: MCM thrifted
Hair on hide: LeatherHideStore.com

This is my favorite arrangement.

And no, there are no end tables, coffee tables, pillows or artwork of any kind.

    I love what you did with the chairs. Recovering chairs is one of the projects I’ve actually done before…the hair on hide idea is brilliant!

    I love your mid-century mod furniture! What a great living room. That yellow chair is fab and that wooden one with the angles is beautiful. It’s such a pretty minimal room.

    I love your style. We have an empty embassy-issued bookshelf because I don’t have any crap to put on it. I love a clear space! Someday we’ll have our own space and it’ll look like this!

    I’m a total simple equal clean girl too. I love the look of other people’s cozy homes with pillows and all that madness, but in our home I need just the basics, to let the light come through the room, and to feel like I can breath without any clutter. Your living room is perfect :)
