Vintage Chair Refashion


Look at that beautiful sky.
 SO...

This is a chair that I've had for so long I can't
even remember where or when I got her!
I'm sure I only paid $5.00 max,
because,
that's my limit on chairs, really.
(I am so cheap).

It's been green, white, red.....

Lately it's been residing on the workstation side of the deck
waiting for a redo.
As long as I had the paint out  for the end table redo, why not tackle her too?
The last painting she had was red over green, the red needed a few more coats
and I just wasn't feeling it so she was pushed to the side.
Time to put her front and center.

Before
(Ignore all that stuff in the background).
Since the base was mostly red, and the paint I had out was
compatible, and the sponge was already loaded....

Monet inspired
The fabric for the seat is a dress I purchased at
a new flea market in Waxahachie for $2.50.
A 90's, gathered creation with lots of fabric.

Oh my!
Out with the old!
In with the new.

Finished
 She now resides in my office/craft/sewing area,
replacing this chair that I found in the dumpster
at our old apartment, actually, I found two of them.


Donate or keep?
 Don't know if I want to keep these chairs or not.

I still have a lot of the dress fabric left,
and this baby needs some clothes.....

Naked ARRANBEE baby.


And I did just purchase a vintage doll clothes pattern on Etsy!
Maybe a new wardrobe for the sweetie pie?

Stay tuned!

Till next time, happy everything.
Bonjour

Great job on the chair. I have lots of a similar patterned fabric. I love pink roses on anything. I guess you know I am green with envy over you're being able to post pics and I'm not. I'm still trying to find a solution,but none found yet.
