Friday: First Look

So this:

+ 2 coats of primer + 3 cans of spray paint +4 dollar a yard fabric + 5 full summer days with a teeny bit of sewing thrown in =

this! 
The first of my chair makeovers is complete, and it turned out better than I could have hoped. Stay tuned next week for a tutorial on how to make welting and reupholster seat cushions.  You'll never look at an ugly yard-sale-chair the same way again.

Have a wonderful weekend-- I'll select the winners of the giveaway at 5 pm tomorrow, and will post the winners here.

YES! I need that tutorial! I want to cover a cushion to go on top of my husband's large ORANGE metal toolbox that he will NOT remove from the study. I thought, "Well fine I will just turn it into a bench with a cushion!" :) And I think I really am going to do it.... a tutorial from you would be awesome!

The chairs look amazing. You are so talented at transforming furniture!

wow, this turned out gorgeous. Can't wait for the tutorial! I can make a simple slipcover like a bench, but would love to know more.

you'd already broadened my horizons to the power of white paint--not to find something 'needed' to practice on!
