The Chair – Before and After

Bad blogger am I. This is the only “before” photo I can find of my $12 Goodwill chair.

But – here she is now!



And I just love her! It just makes my heart so giddy to see her sitting in my living room. And I really wish that she would have had a twin at Goodwill for me to get. Alas, she was all alone and ugly before.. And now…well, just feast your eyes on those beautiful curvy legs, the crispness of the white paint, and the classic trellis design of that enchanting navy blue fabric. And that pop of orange on the pillow – makes me swoon!

Now I just need to figure out a way to incorporate more navy and orange into our neutral beige living room! Don’t worry internet world – there is more of this fabulousness yet to come. Stay tuned!

  1. I am so happy to have found your blog! I am in LOVE with this chair and the adorable pillow. I have two chairs that I am recovering now. I have painted them in a high gloss white, but have no clue as to what fabric I want to use! Where did you find your fabric? Great job!

    • Hi Jesse
      I just found your blog today, too, and started following you! Thanks for the compliments on the chair. It was my first semi-major upholstering project so it took me some time to figure it out but it’s now my fav piece! I got the fabric from I ordered it when it was on sale so it was about $20 a yard, but totally worth.
