You may remember my French Inspired Chair from a few months back. Well, that chair was a "he".
|Just look at him. All handsome and manly.|
The crustated food was so bad it had to be sanded off. I might not be the cleanest person in the world but this I just can't understand!
|The seat fabric was tossed and new padding stapled onto the chair bottom.|
There is a good chance I may have just thrown it out if I didn't realize I had one more piece of this french fabric and that this was for sure the girl version of my original French chair! He had a mate! There were destined to be together! Ok... enough of that. On to some beauty shots.
This girl got a newly padded seat and pretty new cover in my last piece of the French fabric. I wish I knew who made this exact design but I do not. The chair was sanded, primed, and painted with Sherwin Williams Jogging Path. A light distressing and then a quick wipe of walnut stain to antique. I wipe it on with an old t-shirt, let it sit for maybe 30 seconds, and then begin wiping it right back off. It just richens up the color and I promise you can't mess this up.
Living room or dining room together as a pair?? This is the question?
Mis-matched dining chairs is the latest greatest thing right? All these chairs will be getting a coat of paint soon!
|Add a bench with a ruffled slip cover... oooh yes! Don't mind if I do!|
Now... for the best part... this chair was FREE for me! Even IF I didn't happen to already have all the stuff it still would have cost under $20. 1/4 yard of fabric ($8), tester of paint ($5), called my mother to find out she paid $5 for the chair and whalla... $18 total!
