Quick Chair Makeover

I love these chairs--I bought two, kept one as is, but this one needed recovering. I'm guessing someone was smoking and caught the chair on fire since there is a big burn hole in it--although it doesn't stink, so who knows.

I picked up a few fabric sample pieces at a garage sale this past weekend and chose this fun pink one to use on the chair. The chair has a greenish cast to it that isn't showing up, but looks good with the pink fabric. The fabric barely fit across the widest part of the seat. I will sell this one. Sweet girl had to pose for a picture!

  1. Love your chair and the makeover. I also love your finds in the last post. I have one of those metal stands and keep thinking about trying my daughter's doll house on top.

  6. I love ,love ,love, that chair! I have a 'thing' for chairs! I'm just about to run out of room for them. This one looks kind of french to me. I love wicker also. My 4 breakfast chairs are wicker backed and they are my favorite. How much are you selling it for?
