Estate Sale Chair Makeover

Passing Notes Today: Mrs. Williams

Hi Girls,

I've written it before and I'll write it again - estate sales - I'm hooked.  When I'm at an estate sale one of my favorite places to find deals and diamonds in the rough is by searching in basements and garages.  That's exactly where I found this chair (stuck far in the back of a dusty garage).

When I found it, I couldn't wait to hand over my $5 and start the chair's makeover.
I cleaned the frame with a TSP substitute first.

Then, I spray painted like crazy.

The first step of recovering the seat cushion was taking out all the old staples securing the existing fabric down.

Look at all those staple holes - no fun!

Then, I stapled new fabric onto the cushion.
Once the paint was dry, I plopped the cushion back down and the chair was done.

I'm really happy with the chair.  It's going to look great with a desk or as an accent to a room, I just know it.

Can't wait for the next estate sale,

Note from Mrs. Kelly:  You make it look so easy!

Note from Mrs. Gosling:  Love the texture in the chair fabric.  Very pretty and extra seating is always a plus.  Thanks!
