New Chairs

I refinished two chairs i found at goodwill and had to share! Cause I know there are some design geeks out there just like me who appreciate posts like this;) 

Electric sanders are my best friend, as is primer/paint in one! I did both chairs for $57, not too bad. Chairs: $20 at goodwill, paint: $11 home depot, Pillow: $5 each at second hand store Fabric: $16 on sale

BEFORE                                                         AFTER

There are actually two chairs but I only took the picture of the one. The color is a little daring for me, but it will fit perfectly in my decor in my new house. I wasn't sure if the pillow fit with the chair pad, but I decided I liked it enough for now! It was so fun to do, but lack of time and having kids made for a long project!

I think it looks great! You did an awesome job. I think the pillow goes well with the chair. Maybe if you get really bored you could do my rocking chair that is on my to-do list.

I think you would love her -- this totally looks like something she would do. And the pillow is perfect.
