Drab to Fab….pull up a CHAIR

I really enjoyed looking through the projects on this blog:

Grab our Button!

Don’t you just love a cinderella furniture story?

Keep reading!
It’s so pretty! AND it coordinates with the Drab to Fab blog design. It’s like an invitation to have a seat and be inspired.

Can You believe it, Just $4.00! I love it when they don’t over price!
So, I started by unscrewing the seat from the chair frame!
This is where a little elbow grease is needed!
I washed, and scraped off things that I couldn’t describe, nor do I want to. ( Then I washed and scrubbed myself for about 10 minutes, GROSS!)
After the frame was clean, the seat was in need of some TLC. Lucky for me they just tacked this part, which made it a cinch to take off. SCORE!
Then I took it outside for a few coats of black spray paint.
I also spray painted the chair frame a deep plum. That’s right, SPRAY PAINTED!!! I get away with it as much as possible! It was $3.34 at Walmart.
Next, to accessorize? Oh, So Many Choices!
I Chose this BEAUT! ( frame also found at the DI for fiddy Cent! SAWEET!)
Take the glass out, and spray the frame black!
( I had to spray about three layers to cover that silver. For some reason It didn’t want to stick!)
When the seat is dry, cut your fabric about an 1 1/2 inches longer than all sides, fold them up, and tack them down.
( Fabric from Walmart, on sale for $2.22 a yard!)
Isn’t she sweet?
Did you forget about the eye candy? I used the same fabric inside the frame. Just cut it down to size!)
Attach frame with Gorilla Glue, tilt back, and let dry.
Total Drama, RIGHT?
I Just love the way it turned out! What do you think?
I have a few more chairs in my basement just begging to be revamped, and now I can’t wait!
All for only $10.06!!!
