A Makeover Story

I am a sucker for all of the TV makeover shows.
Doesn't matter what is being made over.
A wardrobe, a room or a whole house, I love the before and afters.
I ooh and aah at the final reveal.

Let me present "The Chair".

This chair is in dire need of a makeover.
The drab brown stain.
The sorry looking fabric.

Enter a can of heirloom white spray paint.
5/8 of a yard of green gingham upholstery weight fabric.
Pom-Pom fringe.
You know that anything that includes pom-pom fringe is going to be cute. Right?

How about a little before and after side by side.

Ooooh! Aaaaah! Makes me sooooo happy!

This is going to be such a cute addition to the craft room/studio/guest room.


  1. NO way. I cannot believe that is the same chair. And seriously 5/8ths of a yard! The pom pom fringe is an inspired detail. I love it. I remember my grandma had chairs like that. Way cute and now you have me thinking about some old chairs around here.

  2. what a great makeover! Love the fringe...

    Thanks for stopping by my place.
