Today I thought I would share with you a quick furniture rehab project and also show how a quick change of fabric can give a piece an entirely different look.
For those of you who have been with me for a while, this is a Furniture Rehab 201 project. Take a look at that tutorial if you want to see detailed instructions. I followed the steps from that stool project almost exactly.
Here is how the piece looked when I bought it. I'll bet any of you can see the potential in this cute little chair - especially for $4.00.
I love the shape of the legs and the detail on the top. It actually would have been great with just a change of the seat cover. But you know that I couldn't just do that.
Wanna see my new painting studio? I can paint here to my heart's content with no protests about overspray on the concrete or the grass. Until we get a driveway in a few weeks. :-)
I removed the seat, cleaned the frame very well and hit it with black primer. Then a couple coats of black, satin paint.
Here he is with the first fabric change. I love this. It looks like that fabric and the chair were made for each other.
And a quick change to a black and white damask pattern. Love this one too.
How about something a little bit funky?
Hmmmmmm...not so sure about this one but it might work somewhere.
Maybe a stripe?
That's fun! I like it!
And a toile?
Of course, I like that one.
For the spot that I had in mind, the black and white damask worked the best so that's how he looks today.
