Be Bold With Turquoise!


A friend gave me this chair.
 The painted part was covered in stains.
The seat had been covered several times.
This fabric was ugly and filthy!
But, this little ladybug seemed to like it...
  
I removed the seat and painted the chair with a $4 can of Valspar spray paint and recovered the seat with a funky fabric that I paid $7 for. So for $11 I have a great chair that makes a bold statement!

  2. What a nice transformation. I know I paint old furniture all of the time, but it doesn't get old seeing such a huge change a little paint and fabric can do.
    Have a great day,
