Fun Chair Makeovers



Chairs are a great accent piece of furniture for any room. It can add a pop of color or pattern, and help bring different styles together. They are one of my favorite things to redo and I like to have fun with them. Here is a roundup of a few of my favorite chairs that I have redone. 


This rocking chair was given to me by the apartment manager where I lived at the time. the occupants had lived there for so long, there was wallpaper on the walls from the 70s. I have no idea why this chair was left behind, but I loved the bones of it. I painted it a distressed black and redid the seat with this fun print. 

I found four of these chairs on bulk trash day in Annapolis, MD and I fell in love the shape of the shield back. They were painted with this awful textured spray-paint that was a pain to strip off, but I painted all four chairs in black and redid the fabric in one of my favorite script prints. These were my dinning room chairs for a long time, until two broke, so I moved them into my living room.


Even though they are dining chairs they can be used in a living room like above, or even in a bedroom. I loved these chairs so I knew I had to find a place for there somewhere. 


This char was redone for a teenagers room. She loved blue and florals, so I picked this very pretty fabric to reo it in and painted the chair in her favorite color, light blue. The chair sat in her room next to a bookshelf so she could use it as a reading chair or to watch TV in. 


I got this set from my mom in PA. I had always wanted to do a nautical beach themed sun room, and although I didn't have a customer in mind for this I knew there was one out there. I swear if I had a sunroom I would have kept it. This set found a home in a house near the water, in my dream house. 


And last, but certainly not least we have the flower chair. This was redone for a photographer to use as a prop. I had a lot of fun with this one. I painted it in Annie Sloan Florence and dark waxed it. Then I re upholstered it in this fun zebra fabric and attached the pink flowers to the back.

  1. Nice chairs!! But you can't use these chairs in garden space. For garden decoration always buy
    aluminum outdoor furniture. Aluminum is best for garden, because of its durability and long life.
