Extra Holiday Seating on the Cheap

Saturday, 10 December 2011

I picked up this corner chair on a curb after I saw a "curb alert" on Craigs List.

The rush seat was in rough shape, so I called up my fearless father-in-law and asked him to cut a new seat from wood so I could upholster it. He dropped it off the next day. I seriously heart him...I'm rarely in a hurry for the items I ask for help with, but he's always super quick!

I was all set to paint this chair turquoise with a fun fabric when I totally changed my mind. I used my sample from Valspar (remember the free paint samples they gave away last year?) in Fabulous Red and glazed it. Then I used some ticking stripe fabric that I found at the thrift shop for $1.59. And now I have this...extra holiday seating that can be used year round!


Did a dog get to this first? No problem...I was going for the aged look anyway!

Is it my best redo? Probably not...but for $1.59 total, it works!
