D didn't have any furniture in her room besides a twin bed and a nightstand. (original post) I wanted to give her a place to sit to tie her shoes, to play her guitar, or just a place to toss her jacket.
I went to the local DI and found this. It is a metal frame chair with plastic seat and back. Ew! I liked the shape and it was only $4! Score! My sister and mom were like, "Why on Earth would she get THAT chair...there's no hope!"
Well, look at me now! This was such an EASY makeover it was silly!
I unscrewed the seat, and the back rest just popped right out.
I spray painted the metal frame in Heirloom White.
I took the plastic off the seat.
The foam was still in good condition so I reused it.
I covered it with this damask scrap that my sister had.
Then I screwed it back in place.
For the back I used spray adhesive and covered it and popped it back in place.
Last, I bought the green trim from JoAnn's to finish it off.
I LOVE how it turned out!
What have you beautified lately?
Lots o' love,
