Two chairs made new….again!

Remember these?

The chairs were starting to wobble at the store….

So I took them home to re-glue them.

Actually, I took them to daddy’s……he re-glued them. Love him.

Because they hadn’t sold yet, I felt that although I may love that old upholstery……I may be the only one.

I decided to do the neutral “drop-cloth” fabric slip-covers. They match more decors and have been a great seller.

So, they were transformed…….again.

Remember where they started?


You’ve come a long way baby. Or babies……..

Where they are now.

$24.00 in slip-covers changed them up a bit. Fresh! Don’t you think?

And the pretty upholstery fabric that “only I” love…’s still under there. In case there is one other person in this world that loves it.

I think it will appeal to a larger audience this way.

Do they remind you of this transformation?

Me too.

This couch and the matching chair now live with a family in Virginia.

I’m so glad. It was one of my favorite transformations.

Amazing how we can take pieces from here………

And with a little paint and a drop cloth slip-cover, give them new life.

Love them!

These will go back to the store next week. I am getting another batch ready and can’t wait to show you some of the fun transformations.

We are heading to the mountains tomorrow, for a quick weekend get-away.

We are taking our 16 year old son and his friend, hitting a USC vs Tenn Football game on Saturday and DOLLYWOOD on Friday!


Just so you know……..

But, back to the chairs.

Like the new look?

Like it the old way? Was the old upholstery gorgeous to you too? Was it just me? Anyone? Helloooo??? Somebody?

Dang it.

Hopefully, with this fresh new look, they will be sold soon.

Let me know your thoughts!

I love hearing from you!

    I loved the old upholstery fabric, too.  But they are gorgeous made over.  I love those chairs.  Believe it or not, I have two very similar chairs (one is a glider rocker) that I bought at the local junk store.  They’re all brown wood and ugly with some aztec patterned slipcovers that clash badly with my free plaid couch.  Now I have my inspiration to redo them!  If I can just conquer the clothesline method for the edges, I’ll be all set.  Wish me luck.

    The new ‘look’ is great for resale but gotta tell ya…I LOVE, LOVE the old fabric! Trying to figure out fabrics and color for resale is tough, isn’t it?? I’m new with all this and I always second guess myself!    You mentioned something might be happening with milk paint, anything new? You still using it? Thoughts?

    Love these! So fresh looking, now I just need a sun room to put them in.  🙂

    I’m with Jo Ann – wondering if you’re still liking the milk paint and if you ever tried making your own with calcium carbonate??? I’ve got a project waiting on me, an antique dresser that needs repainted, and I can’t decide what to try… I’ve never tried any of the three.

    Love these! The never bright white fabric does make them look fresher and thee contrasting cording is magic. Hope someone buys them now. Good luck!

    They look great! I liked the other fabric too, but I’m a BIG fan of the drop cloth covers! Great job, I’m sure someone will snatch them up in no time now!
