before and after: kitchen chair

Snow days rock. Especially when you actually have all of the  supplies necessary to complete a decorating project start to finish  without leaving the house!

I've had an ongoing project to paint all of my mismatched dining chairs the same shade of green (the green that I used on my fireplace).  Yesterday I tackled this $10 beauty from a garage sale.

This chair required a quick bit of sanding, 3 coats of paint, and a easy recover of the seat.

Get a look at all of the old layers of fabric! Yowser!

The fabric I used is actually a piece of the bag that my old Anthropologie bedspread was packaged in. I had been saving the big bag for just such a project.

A few staples from my trusty staple gun, a few screws, and viola! Instant pretty chair makeover!

I'm kind of in love with this little makeover!
