Chair Rehab (From dark and dated to soft and chic!)

Here's a sneak peak of the chair after, it has a lot of great detail!

Here it is before, dark and dated....

No seats...

Luckily I have two of them, I was so gung ho on getting 
one of them painted, I didn't take before or during pics.

All I did for the seats is nail down a board and cut foam to fit.

I stapled the drop cloth fabric (witch I love to use) it's durable and neutral.
Then, I created my own trim using the same fabric 
and for a change I used regular old tacks, I like the look!

After the blue paint, I did a quick dry brush with white paint.

Then added gold Rub 'n' Buff on the details of the chairs instead of distressing.

I am really happy with the way it came out, now I have to do the other one to match!

I felt with the rest of the chair being so fancy, 
I would down play the fabric and tacks to give it 
a more casual look, soft and chic!

Now an update on the hole in the back yard...

It keeps getting bigger... maybe we'll put in a coy pond :)


  1. I love what you did to the chair. Beautiful. I found you from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. I will have a blog hop tommorow and I would love to have to you link this to it.

  2. Love the chair and how you make your own trim~that is genious! Love the hole too...what industrious genes...

  3. See...a chair that most people would pass right by because of all that ornateness...is transformed by someone with vision and paint!
