Bedroom Chair Makeover

29 October 2010

contributed by Anna @ Take The Side Street
After months and months (going on a year, no joke) of sitting in all its old, floral-cushioned glory, I finally decided to do something about that chair I (sort of) risked my life to buy.

I have a reaaally small master bedroom. No room for a cute seating area or even a bench at the foot of the bed. I chose not to have a dresser in the room in order to create a bit more room for cuteness (my husband was not a fan of this decision -- cuteness is not as high a priority for him apparently) so when I saw this chair I knew it would be a perfect fit for the itty bitty space.

I removed the gross floral fabric and the nasty old foam cushion that had hardened and then disintegrated over the years. It took a bit of work to remove all the glue and petrified foam residue, but I really wanted to re-use the original wooden seat since it had specific little nooks and crannies cut out of it to to fit around the arms of the chair. And I? Was not about to get all crazy with a jigsaw to finish this project.

 I used leftover foam and batting from the headboard I made for my guest bed:

I saved some money by finding a little piece of velvety fabric on the remnant table at a fabric store. Then I put the kiddos to bed, turned on a period romance movie, poured myself some red wine and a little snackable-sized bowl of chocolate chips, grabbed a staple gun and had myself a wild time.

Wow. Don't look too close, k? I really have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to this (or really, most anything). See the little pleats on the rounded corners? Aww. They're so cute.

I also painted the chair with Rustoleum's Heirloom White spray paint. I know, eeeeverybody and their dog (or blog?) loves that color. So here I am jumping on the bandwagon -- it's a good color, people! It's a really nice and creamy white. No pictures of that step though, 'cause I like to keep you guessing.

(Pretend I have baseboard in my bedroom, please. Baby steps to cuteness.)

What a beautiful makeover! The chair really pops with the new paint and the fabric is perfect!

The chair looks wonderful. I just love that headboard too. How clever and very stylish.
