$7 chair makeover: from meh to OMEHGAWD!


Before and AfterYa gotta give it up for Tatum, the Offbeat Homie behind this chair upgrade. She knows good bones when she sees 'em. And what I mean by "good bones" is that this previously ugly chair has some really good style, nice lines, and a unique seat. But all that style was hidden by that dull brown color.

But when most people would have walked right past this $5 chair, Tatum scooped it up and made a huge change for a total of $7!

She grabbed a can of bright red spray paint and went to town. With the addition of a bright and cheery $2 seat cover, this once-dull chair is now display and "wow!"-ready.

As Tatum put it, "quick, easy and awesome!" So the lesson here is, look beyond drab colors when it comes to used furniture. It's amazing what a can of spray paint will do.
