Vanity Chair After

Let me start by saying I am an idiot. By accident when I cleaned the pictures off my camera this weekend for Sterling's birthday I accidentally erased all the before pictures of this chair. I feel so stupid because who really cares about a project if they can't see the before and after pictures. Well, I am going to share the after pictures anyways because this chair turned out so darn cute.

Just use your imagination to picture the chair before. It was brown and had a crusty goldish cushion. It looked like it had been sitting in a storage unit for years.

This project cost less than $15. All I had to buy was white gloss spray paint and half a yard of fabric. I found the fabric here in Charleston at GDC Home. They have a fabulous fabric selection if you live local and ever need fabric. This vanity chair is actually my sisters ( I know, I am such a nice sister to makeover her chair), but I love the fabric so much, I am thinking of re-covering my dining room chairs in it. Thoughts? Good fabric for a dining room?

Here are the After Shots:



I did have a little help stapling the fabric to the chair. Not that I couldn't have done it myself but when Dad is in town you gotta put him to work right??

I have always wanted to do a DIY project like this but always feel like I am going to mess it up. Yours turned out beautifully.

Love the fabric. Gray and white happens to be my favorite decorating combo. My living room is lots of grayish/silver and cream, and I love it. I'm sure your dining room would be just as amazing!

It looks fantastic. I know...it's funny how much people like before photos...I hate it when I forget to take them. At least you remembered.

Well, if it looked the way you described it before you changed it - you did a great job then! It looks so brand new!
