Musical Chairs

My list of projects always seems so much longer then my list of things that I've completed. Oh well, that's part of the fun. I have found a few more for the list also! I'm sure you've seen a couple of these before but I've decided that my chairs are lacking. They need some excitement... some fervor... okay really they need a make over.

Check out my stained up dining chairs. Gross. They are a solid cherry wood and have a very traditional construction, I don't have it in me to paint them because the wood is so beautiful but definitely some new fabric on the seats. I found some awesome stuff at Hobby Lobby... thinking that may be what they need!



My basic Target barstools are also quite sad. I would love to add some color to them somehow. I recently saw where someone took Annie Sloan chalk paint and painted similar barstools and gave them an awesome vintage flare with numbers on the seats. I thought that might something I could do with these guys fairly inexpensively.



Yup. They look cheap... definitely need some loving and attention. They also blend in with the floor which has always been weird to me.

This is a little random. But I feel like spray painting this plastic stool. It's ugly and beige. Icky. Spray paint will fix it!


Speaking of spray paint! I have decided that this wingback chair (currently covered with a sheet. yup. a sheet) needs to be painted! I found some upholstery paint online and I'm definitely thinking this floral monster needs to experience that. I was thinking navy blue and painting the legs white. It would be a nice dark contrast to the light couches, and hopefully cover up some of the flowers.



Plus the sheet looks awful! Do you have any homely chairs that you have been hiding around your house with bed linens or any other textiles?

  1. I don't think you'd even need to paint those chairs if you changed up the fabric. New fabric will make them look like completely different chairs! And I really like the idea of painting the stools and adding numbers to them. They are going to look so cute!

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you do to the chairs! Your dining room chairs are beautiful and will look great with new fabric.

    And...did you make/paint the navy run in the background of the stools picture? I love the design!

  3. Have you thought about making your own chalk paint?
