"New" Chair

I am ashamed to say that I bought this chair last year at the thrift store. One reason that it took so long to redo it was that I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. This week I finally decided to paint it and recover the seat. I really like how it turned out. My decor (if you will) since my teenage years has always been brown, tan, and a little dark blue or burgundy thrown in depending on the year. Frankly, I was so tired of it but couldn't find anything else I liked. I really like the clean, fresh look of modern decor. Unfortunately, that look would not go with my house. So, I am trying to incorporate it in where I can. That's were the color and look of this chair is supposed to take me. I think it works. I only took one before picture. The seat was covered in a cream and burgundy print material.

the after
 The chair is painted in Exotic Sea from Valspar gloss spray paint and the seat is covered in white leather from Jo-Ann's. I picked the leather because hopefully it will be easy to clean.

I also made the canvas hanging above it. I pulled the colors from the curtains hanging in the dining room. The inspiration came from a canvas I saw on a blog. The chair probably won't stay there for long, but for right now it works.



  1. that took GUTS! haha I would have left it black just because I am so afraid to commit to color!! It fits the style of the chair perfectly though...great job! :)

  2. I love it!!! and I LOVE the color:)

  3. super cute- it would go well in my house- I'm all about BOLD colors:) Its funny how my style has changed drastically from early years- it takes a while but I slowly change pieces out to get the look I want!
