Yay! Have you been to Lindsay's blog BETTER AFTER? No? What are you waiting for? There are several amazing chair re-do's right now, as we speak! Not to toot my own horn (ok, well, maybe a little tooting here) but she has kindly featured mine too! Go check out all the awesomeness!
I have to tell you a secret
I'm a cheater.
Not at cards.
At chair re-upholstering.
See this very ugly chair
So.... I made my own chalk paint by mixing plain ole latex paint and a spoonful of unsanded grout and a tiny bit of water and painted the arms and legs. Here's where the cheating comes in...
I found this awesome material and hot glued it right over top of the old fabric. Yep, I did. I layed the fabric on top, pulled it underneath and glued it right to the chair. Why? Because I'm lazy. Plain and simple. I didn't want to rip all that off and hammer the new stuff all back on. Been there done that (see the houndstooth chair from hell here)
I think she looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself!
I'm quite smitten! Now she matches my new curtains, which I will be showing off next week!
