So just a reminder of what I started with ...
here is the finished chair (I still have the other one to do!).
Don't you just love it!
I recovered the fabric with canvas drop cloth. Yep, I'm hooked on drop cloth. :)
Then I printed out this cool french graphic and cut it out with my cutting knife.
Then stencilled the graphic with black paint and added some gorgeous french red stripes.
I decided not to paint the body of the chair as it was in great condition already, instead giving it a good clean and a coat of furniture wax.
I love the contrast it brings to our table of white chairs.
I'll be putting the other one at the other end of the table when I'm finished. :)
I love my new look chair. And best of all I had all the materials so it didn't cost me a cent to do. :)
Just a quick reminder of the "before"...
And the "after".
