Painted Upholstered Chair


Today I wanted to share with you a french chair makeover that I worked on this past week. I originally planned on reupholstering this chair but then decided to give painted upholstery a try instead. I'm so glad I did because I didn't have much invested in this thrifty chair. 

It makes a great addition in our foyer. 



So here's how it looked when I bought it.



Not awful but pink definitely doesn't coordinate with our decor.

Wow, what a difference!  I'm very pleased how it turned out.




Here's a close up shot.




To paint this chair I used two 8 oz cans of chalk paint and two 8 oz bottles of fabric medium mixed together. The chair fabric was super easy to paint. I ended up doing 2 coats with several extra strokes here and there for more coverage. The paint went on and covered really well. The fabric ended up feeling a little like leather once finished.




What do you think? Would you ever paint upholstery?

Spring Dining Room


I just wanted to share with you a little spring decor that I added in our dining room this past week. I found the large birds nests at World Market last year and just knew they would be a perfect addition to my spring decor. 


We've updated several things in our dining room lately, including our china cabinet makeover, an ironstone plate collection on two walls, and a relocated cabinet across from the buffet.


In case you missed the makeover post from last week you can click here to see what the china cabinet looked like before I painted it. It really is a huge before and after transformation! 


For a springtime feel, I simply added green moss to the nests and the table centerpiece, added succulents and birds nests with speckled eggs in the china cabinet, dried hydrangeas, and classic white plates.





I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
