Darling little birdie chair
My sister in law found these darling little pink chairs at the DI for $15 a piece.
Chair on the right is the before
She asked me to paint the legs for her with some light distressing. I used some of my leftover light gray sample paint I picked up at Home Depot for my Master Bedroom, and then dry brushed over it with the paint that was a shade lighter.
After a quick sanding over the high points, the cute little legs looked like this:
My sister had one of these chairs upholstered in a darling little birdie print.
and it now resides in her music/ reading room.
Doesn't it go perfectly in there?
Try to see past the ugliness of some pieces as-is, and start to look at their potential. Who would have thought a chair like this would turn out so beautiful?
It's amazing what a little paint and fabric can do.
