Chairs are easy to transform... as I've already shown you with my kitchen chairs. A little fabric can totally transform a chair. This also holds true to those not so attractive chairs that so many of us have in our offices. The designers of those chairs did not take into consideration the aesthetic aspect of their design. It was all about function with those chairs. Luckily, with some fabric, maybe some paint, and a screw driver, there is some hope for those yucky chairs.

Alex didn't see to much wrong with this chair in the girls' room...



Me on the other hand, well where do I start??? The ugly 1980's old rose fabric, the shiny chrome base, the gross feel of the fabric. I couldn't take it any longer. So out came my spray paint...love that stuff, then I used some fabric from a left over project, and my trusty staple gun, and voila! Instant 60's throwback without the tackiness.





Here's the one that I spend most of my time in. So much better than what it used to look like, and super easy.



Okay, now for the piece de resistance... my ridonculously fantabulous Craigslist find...

So here is the before...uuuggghhh!



and here is the after...




Isn't it beautimous??? Alex kept saying it was an ugly chair. Well just for that, he doesn't get to sit in it. I absolutely love it. And since I was painting anyway, I just painted that planter next to it also. Love the weathered look. I'm thinking it will be serving as a side table. Some weathered rocks in it, and a round glass top to finish it off. I have to admit, I'm kind of looking forward to spring time... kind of I said.
