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.
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? ;)
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.
If you love this project, put a pin in it! Thanks so much for sharing!
