When Lisa’s husband saw this chair ‘handed down’ by his parents, he had just one word to say about it. Actually, one word repeated 5 times: No, no, no, no, no.

Lisa wisely pre-washed the white twill she chose for the makeover, so shrinkage wouldn’t be an issue on laundry day. Check out the ugly duckling ‘after’:

Lisa chose to make over just the chair for now, but doesn’t rule out re-doing the ottoman in the future. Based on the success of the former, I wouldn’t be surprised if the latter has already gone under its own transformation. For more pictures of this makeover, visit Shine Your Light Blog.
