Cane-back Chairs Makeover

Hello sweet friends! Thank you for sharing in my excitement Tuesday about the completion of our very first room in our new house: our guest bathroom! It really feels like a win to have one room done....one down, many more to go!  Many also responded about being interested in a wainscoting tutorial, so I will gladly share that with you next week on Thursday! In other news, my sons had their first day at their new schools on Tuesday and would you believe that not just one, but BOTH of them got … [Read more...]

French Linen Chair

Hello sweet Friends! I have a quickie makeover for ya'll today! I mentioned the other day when I shared my antique dressing table that I was working on a chair for it. This is that chair, only it's a bit higher than a chair so I'm calling it a stool...maybe I should just call it a chool ha ha. Here it is before. Meet the chool: It was a sad chool, but for $7.50 at the thrift store,  I dragged its sad little self home. I was going to paint it white to match the dressing table, but … [Read more...]

Petite French Chair (& How to Fix a Broken Seat)

Bonjour mes amis! Ready for Themed Furniture Thursday? It's about time for a makeover anyway, right? I've been spending so much time lately on my Fall décor! Can you  guess what this month's theme is? If you guessed French, you would be right! I have painted many French graphics on pieces over the years, but for this challenge, I chose a chair and I chose not to paint graphics. Here is the chair I chose: I found it a couple of weekends ago when all furniture was 20% off at one of my … [Read more...]

Vintage Cane Club Chair Makeover

Hi Friends! Up for a little furniture redo today?  How about this pretty little cane club chair I picked up recently at the thrift store? I spied it at the Salvation Army on a Thursday for $44, and I really liked it so I asked the gal if they were having any sales any time soon.  She told me that all furniture would be 50% off on Saturday. Luckily it was still there! It ended up being only $22! Woo hoo. Now you might think you already know what fabric I used, right? Not this time. … [Read more...]

Dressing Table Bench Makeover

Hello friends! Have you ever peeled off wallpaper to reveal another layer underneath? And then another layer underneath? And so on? That was what happened to me only with a dressing table bench! My Mom picked this up at the same estate sale where she scored these amazing French provincial chairs. (Trust me, they did NOT start out amazing.) We had been together the day before and she went back for the chairs, so I sent her in after the bench as well since it was the last day and everything was … [Read more...]

Oh Christmas Chair

Hello lovely people! Welcome to Themed Furniture Thursday! Every month I, along with several of my favorite blogging buddies, makeover a piece of furniture to fit a particular theme. Any idea what this month's theme was by seeing the preview picture? Red! The color red is this month's theme. This was a really tough one for me because I don't have anything red in my house, and it totally doesn't suit my style...with one exception...at Christmas time! I had the perfect piece of furniture for … [Read more...]

French Provincial Chair Makeover

Today I am so excited to share my French Provincial Chair makeover with you!  I'm excited mostly because they are done! As you can see by the preview photo, this story has a happy ending. But it wasn't without a few bumps (and blisters) in the road. My Mom and I spied these chairs at an estate sale last Friday. We passed on them, knowing they required a lot of work, but she had a change of heart and went back for them on Saturday. Luckily everything was 50% 0ff and she scored these two … [Read more...]

Sewing Chair with a {top secret} Drawer

Some of our previous themes have been: Metallic, Bold, Flowers, and Travel.  This month's theme is NUMBERS! There are a lot of ways to incorporate numbers into a piece of furniture, and this chair was the perfect candidate for this challenge: I found this sad little chair at a yard sale for $5. There wasn't anything … [Read more...]

“Bar Chair” Redo for my New Kitchen

It's not always easy coming up with a name for a new post, especially when you have no idea what a piece of furniture you just made over is called!  Maybe you know? Is it a bar stool? Not really...is it a chair? kind of. It's a chair at bar stool height...bar chair? Okay now that we have that out of the way, it seems like my kitchen is taking longer than expected. but it's really just small details that are dragging on. The main stuff is done! I had family in town this week for my nephew's … [Read more...]
