I Painted It White – Part 2

You can read why painting furniture white is “stickin’ it to the man” here

Some of you probably recognize this chair from last month’s Weekend Junk feature.

I found her (yes, I shall be referring to the chair as a ‘her’ from here on) at Goodwill on Half-off Day for $19.99 $9.99!
Up close the wood had a few dings and scratches and the fabric was well-worn, but that ain’t nuthin’ some paint and new fabric can’t fix!
I removed the seat and painted the frame Creamy by Sherwin Williams.
…apparently I don’t have any painting pictures
While the paint was drying, I pulled the nails from the cushion and removed the fabric.
I found the new fabric at Joann’s for $10.99/yard. I bought ½ a yard and had a 40% off coupon…BAM!

I used the old fabric as a pattern and cut out a new seat.

Lots of staples later and that old fabric was long forgotten!

I put her back together and now I have a girl-crush!

Chair - $9.99
Fabric - $3.56
Paint – On hand
Staples – On hand
Total - $13.55
