Bamboo Furniture Finds & Obsessions

I need to talk about my L.O.V.E. for all things Bamboo today.  I hope that is okay?  I am not sure exactly when it happened but I have really started to gravitate toward bamboo – the real deal or the bamboo look doesn’t matter… I am loving them both. 
First, I want to show you some of my recent acquisitions.  They are Bamboo Heaven to me!

Forgive the god awful red rugs on the floor!  This is our sunroom that is in desperate need of a total makeover…. but for now it works as a perfect storage room and workshop for me because I don’t care if I mess anything up in here!

I love this chair and ottoman.  It is so cool!  There are tabs with buttons that attach these cushions to the chair.  It is super comfortable too!

I really love the bamboo details.

Close-Up of the rockin’ couch!  Don’t worry these cushions will not be like this for long.  Who thinks of the Brady Bunch when they look at this?
This couch is super comfy too!

To me this chair is my rock star!  It is my favorite of all the pieces.  It has really great detail.

I love the caning on the back!  I may keep this stained…. just pretty it up a little.

I also love the used to be Gold accents on the end of the arms.
The plan for all this furniture is to have all the cushions re-upholstered and to most likely paint all the bamboo in some great colors…. depending on the fabrics we choose to go with.  Here is a sneak peek at some fabric possibilities.  What I also love about this furniture is I feel like it would be great indoors or out!  I will for sure use Indoor/Outdoor Fabrics to recover them.

I also have a Chesterfield and a Wingback going out for new Upholstery today!  These fabrics will most likely end up on those… so I gotta get out to lookin’ at fabric ASAP for all that Bamboo.
The Upholsterers should be here any minute to pick up my furniture…. I am so excited!!  Oh my goodness…. there is my doorbell!  They are here!!!
Yay… they took it all.  I cannot wait to post all the final pictures for you all.
Here are some of my Bamboo Inspiration Shots.

This picture makes me question whether or not I should paint this furniture or just touch up the stain?  We will see….

How do you feel about painting Bamboo?  Are you a lover or hater of Bamboo?
