Chair Makeover

Last fall I did a small table makeover. Here is the link to the post if you’d like to check it out: We have this really awkward space between our fireplace and the door to our backyard. It has a window that goes down pretty far, so I had to get creative with what to put there. The table fit perfectly there.

We also had an old chair that we got together with a big old office desk. We got a more comfortable office chair for the office, so I decided to redo this old chair to match the table. Below if a picture of the old chair before I painted it. Check out the seat on the floor behind it. I mean, it was just ugly. 

I decided to paint the chair the same off-white as the table. I distressed it just a little bit and then I antiqued it with a brown antique wax. I also purchased new fabric for the seat. I got this very cute pattern at Walmart. Check out the after result of both pieces here.

I am still not 100% sure about the antique finish, but for now it’s staying like this. It’s definitely better than it was.

What I loved most about this project is that it was very inexpensive. The small table and chair were given to us by family members who no longer used these furniture pieces. The paint I used was a chalk paint that I bought on sale a while back. The fabric and antique wax used for the chair was purchased at Walmart for about $20 total.

Till next time.
