Happy Themed Furniture Makeover Day! New year, new logo, and some lovely new bloggers have joined our DIY Furniture Girls group. This month’s theme is Shades of White, and I chose this chair with a very blue suede seat for my project:
First things first, off came the seat and the suede (buh-bye!). There was basically no padding, just a thin cotton layer, so I added extra cushion…
The cushion was a little big but it was easy to cut to the right size. You can buy these pads for a few dollars pretty much anywhere fabric is sold. Then I recovered the seat in pretty fabric from Hobby Lobby.
For the Shades of White theme I painted the chair in Old White Chalk Paint®.
And here is the final look….
I did some distressing for fun, and to keep the original vintage style…
This may be a winter theme but this chair sure has me longing for spring!
Here’s a before/after of my vintage chair makeover:
