What I did this weekend...

Saturday I got this chair, for free since our neighbors didn't want it anymore, and immediately I saw that it had potential! In one afternoon I sanded down the old varnish & painted this black semi-gloss over the entire chair. I recovered the seat {it still had a nice cushion} with a cotton upholstery fabric & Viola! A new chair for our office area!


  1. I love DIY before and after - great job!

  2. Thanks, it was so easy but turned out so great. I love looking at how it was before because it's totally different!

    i got it at home fabrics.
    it was in the outdoor fabric section a couple weeks ago.
    there not much there to choose from so this one stood out. i love the before and after on your chair.

  6. In case you're interested! Chair challenge and you're chair is just in time!


  7. I have almost the same chair, here in Honolulu that i also just repainted and reupholstered...so fun! I couldn't find where to send a pic but would be glad to if you want!
