Garage sale season is springing into action and I am a happy camper. I love me some trash-to-treasure finds. I found the perfect chair for a little make over---check it out!
I started to rip out all the staples and then remembered that I needed the before shot. After ripping off several layers of fabric and several layers of foam I finally found the original upholstery. So it appears that this chair once had a cushion seat that it is now missing, but I know a great lady who can conjure up just about anything with a little ingenuity, my Mom!
I painted it a nice blue, then realized the fabric that I had was blue and decided it would be too much blue. So I painted it white again. The added bonus to painting the chair blue was that it peaked through when I distressed it. Sometimes mistakes happen for a reason, just learn to embrace them.
Here is a picture of my mom working on the chair. Maybe one day she will let me take a real picture of her.
Here is a finished picture of the chair. Once again I am not good at documenting, please forgive.
|I love the contrast with the chevron pillow!|
Here is some of the blue peaking through. Great character
