Thrift Store Painted Fabric & Frame Chair

Hey guys!

Today is Themed Furniture Makeover Day!  Love. this. day.




This month’s theme is “BLACK.”  Love. this. theme.  ;)

It’s no secret that I love me some black and white decor, and when I found this chair for $15, I knew if was perfect for this theme.


Painted Chair before

Please tell me that you put furniture on your island for painting too…

The first thing I did, after cleaning, was to paint the frame with two coats of Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture paint in Wrought Iron.

I decided to try my hand at painted fabric too, and update the upholstered back of the chair.  I taped off the fabric section, and used Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint in Linen (affiliate link-I was impressed by this paint and the price!) , thinned almost 1:1 with water.

I really brightened up the fabric.  I’m still contemplating a stencil for the back, but I haven’t made a decision.

I chose to recover the seat with a fabric pattern that just might shock you.

Surprise!  You never expected stripes, did ya?  ;)


Painted Chair on Reinvented


I might just leave this wool scarf on the back, I love the pop of color.

I did a little distressing to the frame, and added a coat of poly for protection.

    1. Thanks Coco! I was hoping that the mix of finishes would help her relax a little and fit in to our home a little better. So far she has! :)

  1. Kimm! I wanted to stop by to tell you how in love I am with this chair. I’m a sucker for stripes and anything black and white. I love that painted the upholstery and then reupholstered the base cushion in a pattern. It’s stunning! I’m featuring this chair at Friday’s Furniture Fix tonight! I hope you’ll stop by to say hi…

    Thanks again for sharing this project with us! Have a great weekend! Carrie, Thirty Eighth Street
