Daybeds will be going home to France

Daybedsandsilverchandelier 001So I bought some daybeds months ago when we were trying to buy a (another) wreck, this time a Georgian place in Dorset, which had an impossible lease/contract and was falling down beyond repair. These are actually French swan neck daybeds which will make a nice pair of small sofas. They need total refurb, as the existing bright yellow silk fabric has faded unevenly and has stains on it (yuck). I got them on good old ebay and little did I know at that stage that they would be going back to France to live. I will need to re-do the woodwork as well, so I have bought a book on French polishing and will need to decide what the best course of action is. At this stage I picture these going in the tiled covered courtyard area at the bottom of the stairs,.
