Thrifty chair redo's

STEAL of a deal.

This chair cost me $5 at my fav Antique store in Halifax - Almanac Antiques. (Watch for an upcoming post on it) The chairs arms were loose so I removed them and painted the chair white. (Sorry I don't have the true Before pic of the chair un-painted!)

Next I re-upholstered the cushion.  To do this I re-used an exisiting cushion I had and purchased a small amount of material to do the trick. Staple gun is all you really need.

After...freshly painted shabby chic chair with a clean new upholstered seat..

Before...Here are my dining room chairs. Also purchased from an antique store in downtown Halifax. I got each for $60, solid wood and immaculate shape!

After removing the seats I spray painted the chairs heirloom white...

After...



Below is another antique store find for $10. Only change I made was re-upholstering the seat cover.

Cheers to re-using friends!
