I’ve being toying with the idea of painting the chair I purchased last year for $15.
It’s in near perfect condition except for the color of the fabric.
This morning I was doing a little blog hopping and ended up on two blogs that gave me the kick in the rear I needed to get started on this project.
Take this chaise for example found on the blog Me and Jilly
Looks great, huh?!
And what about this little sweetie found here
I LOVE the pink and gold on that bench!
I can’t mention those lovely makeovers without mentioning who that got the inspiration from…
Kristy Swain of Hyphen Interiors was the first person I saw do this (though I’m sure others have too). I really loved the way her chair turned out and I can’t wait to start on mine! Hmmm…, I think I’m going to start today! Well wait, I need to decide on a color for my chair.
I’m thinking navy blue
I could do orange
I could even do teal.
I think navy or the teal may be the colors I go for!
What do you think of painting upholstered furniture? Would you be scared to do it? I mean the char was only 15 bucks. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll just sit it in my garage until I’m ready to get it professionally done
