Emergency Chair Rehab! {Garage Find Makeover}

Remember that chair I found in my mom's garage?? (Catch up here!) Well it finally got the makeover it deserved!

A little more history about the chair.. my cousin got it from a garage sale {yaay the chair was rescued!} and used it while she was living here in 2006. She moved away and it had been sitting in my mom's garage ever since ....alone, cold, & neglected {poor chair!}.  Six years later, I noticed the chair.  The chair went from it's old home in my mom's garage to it's new home in my garage for about 3 weeks {from one bad situation to the next...poor chair!}. I decided to stop neglecting the chair and used this weekend to devote time and give it the the TLC that it needed. 




before & after

I think this is a nice addition to my home office!

And now the chair's journey to becoming beautiful again...

There she goes cold, alone & neglected

Cushions removed & Rhyan is helping to clean her up

ahhh a couple of  fresh coats of paint and now drying in a nice breeze!

oooh! new clothes!

  She's fancy now!

and now completed!

The total cost for me was $20.00 for fabric and new painting supplies (brush, roller, paint pan). The paint used was Behr - Light Copper, which was left over from painting the dining room.
