make me pretty – antique chairSeptember 7, 2009
I walked past this chair so many times at the thrift store. It wasn’t until I decided to start my Etsy store that I really took a close look. Man, I am glad that I did! Once you get past the blah fabric and boring brown there is a gorgeous chair underneath.
When I removed the seat to take off the fabric I discovered a bunch of old springs underneath. Neat! I wonder how old this chair is? I painted the chair a creamy off-white and covered the seat in some of my favorite Amy Butler fabric. I had planned on distressing the chair but I changed my mind once I saw it painted. It is just perfect the way it is. It is so clean, almost beachy feeling! love!
