Vintage Chair Make Over - The Big Reveal!!!

So just a reminder of what I started with ...


And now...

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".
