Chair Makeover

Okay, so I was going to save this for later this week, but after finishing it last night - I just can't contain myself!!!
-
-
Last year, mom & I spent lots of time searching for the perfect chair for Tiana's senior pictures... low and behold we found it! It was perfect! But because Tiana is so stunning, you hardly even notice the chair. :) So after the pictures were taken, this chair went straight into a corner in my dining room and was hardly seen.

So it was time to make this beauty stand out! You know what the means! Thrift store makeover!!! So here is the before...

Now it is time to see the after!

-
She is now highly noteworthy!

-
My favorite makeover to date!

Are you ready!?
-
-
-
-
-
I can't hear you!

-
Okay seriously, a little more scrolling!

Here it comes!

Ta Da! Isn't she gorgeous!? I took no pictures of the process... so the Before & After will have to suffice!
-
-
First, I started by tearing her apart and removing all the cushions. Then came a coat of primer and two coats of white spray paint. I bought the green fabric at JoAnn's.
-
-
Instead of making new buttons, I just painted the old ones! This chair won't get a whole lot of actual use, so the painting option seemed perfect. Chris helped me put all the pieces back together cause two hands were not enough. (This meant that I got to use the power stapler, love it!) To finish it off, I covered the staples with rope from Walmart.

For a last pop of color, I painted the grooves in the front the same color as the buttons. I love how this project turned out! She will live in the new guest room, once I have it completed of course! Hope you enjoyed seeing it! Have a Very Happy Tuesday!!!

That's one cute makeover. I really like how the teal accents pop, and well, green is my favorite color. Very nice! Hopefully it will get more use in your guest room.
