Sheety Chair

Now that summer is officially over for me I've been spending a little time (when I've managed to find it and NOT be asleep) to find some time reviewing my summer project list. There's still a bunch of things on that list I haven't quite gotten to. But! One thing one my list that I've been wanting to do forever is fix up this chair. I've had it for at least a year and a half and it has had the same uglio sheet covering it. That's not classy. Single ladies need to be classy.



Problem is that right now I can't really afford to get it reupholstered. I'd have to first get Lucyfurr declawed because she has been tearing up the chair and then pay for the fabric and find time to actually reupholster it. Which with my student teacher semester heating up is nearly impossible.

Check out what it looks like under the sheet...

 
 
Total gag. Not a fan of it at all! The chair was free though and I love it's classic style. I think it's beautiful. What I decided to do was order some upholstery spray paint. Ever heard of it? I hadn't either until I started googling around for some other solutions to the chair issue I was having.

I found this on amazon.com for only $11! If nothing else it was totally cheap. I bought the navy blue color because I think it has the best chance of actually covering up the crazy floral pattern that covers the chair. It should be here later this week! I hope it works!

Hope everyone is having a great day so far!

  1. Cool! I'm excited to see how it turns out. I'm been wondering about that paint! Even if the floral pattern shows through a little bit, it will probably look like because the navy will cover the crazyness! :)
