Welcome back to Makeover Monday! While out antique shopping a couple of weekends ago, I ran across a chair that I loved immediately. It wasn’t cute as it was, but I knew I could turn it into a piece that fits my style. So, for less than $12 I came home and gave it a facelift! And since I had everything else I needed on hand, this 70’s chair makeover didn’t cost me anymore that.
The after. I used one of the many coffee sacks I had at home to cover the seat, using some black fabric underneath the keep the white vinyl from showing through. The seat was in good shape, so I opted to leave the vinyl in tact and just put the fabric and burlap over it.
I used Maison Blanche chalk paint to change the color of the wood, starting with a coat of Crème De Menthe. Then, I followed that up with a coat of Sugar Cane from the same company, a light 220 grit sanding and a coat of clear wax. I was very happy with the results, which aren’t quite magnified in the pictures.
I haven’t decided where it’s going yet, but it’s definitely a keeper!
Peace & Love,
