31 Days Of Decorating With (Re) Purpose – Paint And Cover Ugly Chairs


Another favorite item is this chair. Bought at the same sale mentioned yesterday for $5, I lament the fact there is no “before” picture.  It was, hmmm, ugly. Dark brown stain and gold fabric. But we needed a chair.

Another dear friend loved me in her own way during that difficult time. She took this chair home and tackled it. She won. Tiffany spent time repainting it white. She made a cover, and even a matching one for my ugly stool ($1) that was bright and colorful. I don’t sew, and having a seamstress friend proved a valuable score on this project.


Here is the chair without the cover. I wanted to show that even without a cover, the gold fabric looks “fall-ish”. Like I meant to do that.
