$7 chair makeover: from meh to OMEHGAWD! #Do It Yourself#before and after#chairs#decor#makeover#spray paint June 5 2012 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Ya 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.

I especially love the cushion and how it was applied over the existingly amazing seat. Slightly dangerously, these "quick and easy" posts make me feel like I can makeover my whole house… which I likely lack even the smallest ability to do… Hmmm. 4 agree Reply You don't even need to spend the $5.00 for the chair. I find chairs on the curb all the time! 5 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
