CHAIR MAKEOVER

Last week,  while hanging the mirror in the foyer,  this happened...

{ I grabbed the nearest chair and used it as a step stool!  Stupid! @$%&! }

To make the long story short,

I spray painted it green and got a ply board at home depot...

{ I used Krylon in ivy leaf}


and made a chair cushion cover
{I used white faux ostrich fabric, 1 inch foam and batting.  All are leftovers from previous projects}


One down...


three to go...

I love the green! We did the exact same thing once, stood on a wicker chair and went right through it.. good job on the re-do!

Love the green. AND the buffet piece in the background is BEAUTIFAUL! Is that a Craig find too!?

It obviously all worked out because it looks great but I know you must have been sick about it.

you've tackled a lot more than this in the past, I'm sure, going thru the other 3 will be a breeze for you! :-)

Yikes! Sorry about the damage but your chair is better because of it. Love those chairs - my cl had a dining set in the Chinese Chippendale style and they wanted about $2k for it. Ridiculous.

hi there! popped on over from The Mustard Ceiling and read through your entire blog! I found a similar chair on the side of the road, and I grabbed it even though the cane seat was broken so I'm glad I saw this so I can use the same easy fix!
