The Bedroom Chair - Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!


"After"

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!

Last week I got a couple comments about the chair in my bedroom so I thought I would share again the makeover I did on this chair years ago. I bought this chair at the flea market back in June 2008 for only $15. 


"Before"
I could see that it had a lot of potential but I had never reupholstered anything before but I decided to buy a book on reupholstering and go for it!  



I think I used paint I already had and I bought the blue linen fabric at a thrift store for $4 so this chair only cost $19 ...now that's a deal!


This little chair has been moved all around my previous apartment but it ended up in my bedroom and I used it as a vanity chair. 


And now in the new apartment it's in my bedroom. 




Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

Thank you so much for sharing your chair--I was one of the ones asking about it :) I love it! It looks quite a bit like the chair I am sharing this week--but I took the lazy man's path and painted the upholstery. I love it! Thanks so much for hosting. :)
