chair makeover

Think this $7 Goodwill chair has potential?…


  • unscrew seat from chair
  • remove layers (3!) of old seat fabric, plus flattened cushion
  • sand & prime chair
  • decide where chair will be in home, dream about color & fabric

The legs & front skirt have a groove…  Decision:  glossy khaki/grey with charcoal in the grooves, steely grey suede cushion fabric

Hard to tell in the picture, but I distressed the top half of the chair on some edges.  The feminine lines work well since it’s on the Mrs. side of the master bedroom.

Part 2 of the master bedroom re-do complete!  Total cost: $35
