Upholstered chair

I brought this chair at a garage sale for $2 months ago. Apricot velvet... nice....

I took it apart and spray painted it in black gloss.

Then with my trusty staple gun I stuck on my new
uphostery fabric.
Then Viola I just stuck it all back together. Much better!
i am linking this up here and here


  1. way better. love the fact that you only paid $2 for the chair. Super jealous that you have good luck finding cheap furniture to transform. Oh and I saw your room update on Better After. :)

  2. hi em,
