Chair Redo

Way back in June…I bought this beauty for $6.

And then it sat, and sat, and finally it got a makeover thanks to my sweet hubby.

I still want to distress it, and touch up the legs..but for now I’m extra pleased with my thrift store chair.   Plus it was a heck of a lot cheaper than these at Pottery Barn.  Gotta love that!

What a beautiful re-do! Remarkably like the Pottery Barn ones. I love what a coat of white paint will do...

That is so awesome! I have a rocking chair sitting out in the garage until I can think of something to do with it...now I'm inspired!

What kind of paint did you use????

Di~ said...

Wow, Allison, I love that chair it's redo is awesome! Wahoo! (and just a little opinion here: I wouldn't distress it, the chair is more of a formal style. just my 2 cents.)

Lizzy Mayorga said...

Your chair turned out beautifully!! Did you sand/strip the stain before painting? Lovely. And I love the dotty seat and the pretty pillow.

Atina AlGa said...

That's awesome!

I just got my April issue of Martha today and there's an article about painting and recovering chairs just like this. Wow! Just think, you are on the same wavelength as Martha and her highly paid creative staff.
