I always say it, but it really is amazing what a coat of paint can do. The color possibilities are endless and a new paint job just breaths life into anything! We've been needing some dining chairs for about a year now, and I found some old yellow ones at a yard sale for $3 each! Needless to say, I scooped those up and gave them some DIY lovin'!
Suddenly, there are a plethora of chair makeovers out there. So many, in fact, today we get a 2-fer. Check 'em out.
Chezlin's little sister had a pair of shoes she she didn't like anymore, so Chezlin decided to re-upholster them. Okay, she re-covered them. No, actually, she re-MADE them. Not possible? Possible! Chezlin actually saw the instructions in Craft and decided to give it a go. Check it out....
It seems like a good time to share my Mid-Century-Modern Rocket Chair Reupolstery Project. There are numerous photos that tell the story, so I'll make the instructions brief.
Being socked in today inspired me to finish my oval ottoman. The VIBRANT plaid was gleaned from a huge vintage pleated skirt. Once the waistband and pleats were removed, there was a piece of fabric measuring 6 yards by 36". Before the transformation, the red striped ottoman had clunky legs and the fabric had been stained.
