Trash to Treasure Tuesday-Desk Chair Makeover

Hi Friends!  Welcome to Trash to Treasure Tuesday!


Trash to treasure tuesday



I’m excited to share a fun desk chair makeover today.  Let me introduce you to today’s TRASH, ok?

I picked up this dining chair at the Goodwill for $3.99.

Do you see the whitish haze on the top?  I thought that was just a cloudy film on the finish due to moisture.  But…

my friends, that was some serious CRUD.  Gross.  I used a scouring pad, baking soda and some elbow grease to clean this baby.

Once my slate was clean, I gave her two coats of Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint in Oyster.  I sanded her smooth, and added a coat of clear wax.

That disgusting seat was covered with a layer of cotton batting, and another piece of fabric cut from our duvet cover.  (if you’re now thinking “WAIT, WHAT?  She’s cutting up a duvet cover??  Check out my quick and easy master bedroom update for a perfectly reasonable explanation. )

(I just noticed that tiny piece of extra fabric in the front.  I’ll fix that asap, promise.)

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the transforming power of paint.  I am so excited to use this cutie at my desk.

And since I’ve added some graphic punch to our room using my mad love for typography, I added a little fun to the back.

If you love my new desk chair, and you know you do, I’d love a pin!
