I have chairs on the brain. I recently found this chair at the local Habitat for Humanity and fell in love. Which is odd, cause chairs aren’t usually my thing and I’m not sure why this particular chair caught my eye…it definitely wasn’t the worn, gold seat (which sags when you sit in it) or the seen better days finish, but I liked it from the moment I spotted it out front. They always have a display of chairs out front and I snatched this one before walking into the store. Of course, it was the only one without a price tag, but after a quick price check it was all mine for the bargain price of $16 bucks. Birthday money well spent, I think. See I have this problem of spending birthday money (or any type of cash gifts) on bills or other necessities and the boyfriend informed me that was a big no-no. Cash gifts are to be spent on things you don’t need (duh)…enter my new, well-used, I- need-another-project-like-a-hole-in-the-head, chair.
But, before I can tackle this project it’s time to browse the web in search of some inspiration…
Love this makeover from Two Thirty-Five Designs. Similar style chair and love the bright yellow…
Another great one in bright white from Navy Bean.
The yellow and white fabric is great one this one from Sunset.com. I love a great craigslist find.
I’m loving yellow and grey right now, so this fabric with the crisp white frame is a fave. You can find the before here on Thrift Diving.
Another fabric fave. This transformation is crazy good from Three Boys.
Decisions, decisions. If my recent before and after pics are any indication, I see some yellow and grey in my little chair’s future.
