Happy Tuesday! This is going to be a short one because I've had a long week...and it's just begun :) I have a big project in the works for my kitchen but for now...here are a few of my past chair projects-before and after shots together so you can see the transformations.
So, like my last post about mirrors--I'm also obsessed with chairs...and lamps...and cabinets with lots of drawers...the list goes on. I'm a collector (hoarder) at heart for sure.
All of these chairs were found at thrift shops. The one above is actually an old sewing chair (the seat lifts up for storage). I painted it black and upholstered the seat and front/back of the backrest with a cream colored decorator fabric.
This chair was pretty gross when I bought it...the padding if you could call it that...looked like grass... I painted the wood a bright blue, updated the fabric to a fun b&w upholstery weight fabric and painted the black detail on the backrest. Probably my favorite chair redo to date.
This chair took me forever. I couldn't get the color on the wood right and the paint kept getting caught in the grooves. I do like how it turned out though. I also used decorator fabric for the seat-I'd had the fabric for a while and finally found a use for it :)
Okay...so this one clearly isn't a chair. But it's a pretty awesome footstool. I snagged it from GW for $5...sprayed the 'wood' legs with bright blue Valspar spray paint and used the same b&w fabric as the chair above (I had some left over). For the padding I used a bed pillow that was too flat that I was going to get rid of. I think it turned out pretty cute.
Happy Treasure Hunting!
