Here is where this sweet chair was in my old house, where I bought it for...the bathroom. I loved it there. I stained it to match the bathroom console. Now, I have no place for it in my new house. Boo! My Nashville master bath is so much bigger, but yet, there is really no spot for my special chair. So, it sits right outside my bathroom....sigh.
-You can turn an ugly old chair into something you love! You gotta have vision, people!
-Look at the bones of the chair. Do you love the shape? Do you love the size? If so, you can probably make it work.
-Not all chairs are complicated to reupholster. If only the seat is fabric, I just unscrew the seat from the base of the chair, cover it in my new favorite fabric with a staple gun, and screw the seat back to the chair. Simple as pie.
-You can strip and restain or you can simply spray paint too. I've done both.
-Redoing a random chair is a cheap and easy way to add color and/or texture into a space.
-It also funs up a blank small wall. =)
-Goodwill, junk stores and craigslist are great places to find a chair that needs love.
