Remember I told you that a lady came by and bought the striped dresser but but continued to shop in my house? Well, one of the pieces she bought was a winged back chair that I had bought many years ago from a thrift store. It was an ugly burgundy/purple colour. I do not have a before picture, sorry!
I had seen so many people use and post about painter’s drop cloths and decided to try it out for myself… I stripped it down to the bare bones, painted the legs and added castors…then upholstered it in painter’s drop cloth…..
WOW! I love how it turned out!!!
I made an accent pillow out of the left over fabric. I had also seen people paint on fabric in some of the blogs I had visited and thought I’d give it a try… I painted some stripes on the pillow and…well…. It turned out great!
I know… there are “leg” prints on the seat cushion…My children thought they’d try out the chair….did I mention there are five of them???? Yah…first and last time sitting on a light fabric chair!!! LOL! :0) I am not a crazy mom… but… when you’ve worked hard on something like this you really don’t want “sticky” people sitting on it..am I right?? :0)
This is my beautiful assistant Rosie…She mostly helps with hugs etc……but she’s always there when I need her! :0)
Anyhoo… I have since bought another wingback chair to replace it (future post!!!) and I think I will do the same treatment to it….this one has prettier legs, french legs to be exact! She will be lovely! I haven’t had time yet but I intend to start her in the near future.
Have a great weekend all!
