From Outdated to Fabulous!

I found these wonderfully horrible chairs on craigslist for $50. I was working on a client’s office and I knew I wanted to use barrel chairs. When I saw them, I just knew they would work perfectly. I kind of fell in love with them and had a really hard time giving them up. They would have worked really well in my living room. My fingers are crossed that I come across another pair of these chairs before my obsession takes over and I try to steal them back…

The fabric was awful and the wood was pretty scratched up, but lucky me, the caning was in great shape!

Here is my inspiration:

I reupholstered them with an inexpensive white fabric and painted the rest of the chair black.

Aren’t they gorgeous? I absolutely love them!!

  1. Kel! I am blown away by your blog! You are killing it! Ok, so here is the thing… a family friend is giving us their old glider rocking chair, and I would love to repaint and reupholster it once we find out if we’re having a boy or girl…. would you be willing to help me?
