<![CDATA[You know what time it is?? (aside from cocktail hour?) Well, it's Drab to Fab Friday and today I'm gonna share a few of my easy-peezy chair re-dos! This makeover is as easy as 1, 2, 3... 1. Shop for chairs with great character and a sturdy build. 2. Pick out fabric to livin’ up the seating party. 3. Recover that sucka! All you need is a little creative thinking, 30 minutes of your time, a staple gun, and maybe a hot glue gun (if you want to get real fancy with it and add some bling like nailhead trim or upholstery trim). I actually haven’t gotten into the upholstery trim yet, but I’ve got a few ideas brewing in the brain already! Here are a few (quick and easy!) updates I’ve made on some chairs around our house. I love how a little fabric and paint can bring new life to an ol’ thing… The only place frogs should be is in a pond…
So fresh and so clean, clean! I’m thinking about painting them? But I kind of like the contrast…what do you think?
This lil guy was NOT a comfy cush for my tush…
So I added some padding and fabric left over from the next chair project…
(excuse the mess in the back, this was our ‘catch all’ room in the old house) : )
This was my Granny’s rocking chair, beautiful sturdy oak makes for a cozy rock. Look at that corduroy-lookin’ glistening gold, screaming to be recovered!
I love this turquoise damask print! I didn’t want to cover up the pretty oak, so to give it a little more updating I added a brass nail head trim all around the bottom of the fabric.
