Hello lovely Friends! I’m sure most of ya’ll have seen this dressing table (actually may be a writing desk) makeover I shared recently:
I was so pleased with the positive feedback on this pretty lady, so thank you! (See this makeover HERE if you missed it!)
Today I’m back to share the chair that I redid to make it a set.
I shared a peek of it in that post:
However I already had a ton of photos to share that day, so I decided to share the chair separately, and today’s the day!
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I picked it up at the thrift store for $10 several months ago:
I actually bought it to use in my Halloween display. (You can visit our Outdoor Halloween Tour HERE.)
It has just been sitting in our garage ever since. I promised my Hubby that I would eventually find a use for it and yay I finally did!
It has the same Queen Anne legs as the dressing table so I thought it would be a nice match…
So much more delicate and feminine now! I just love how the paint accentuates those pretty curvy details:
To redo this chair, I removed the chair pad first. Then I painted the chair in Dropcloth by Dixie Belle Paint. You may remember I used a color called Buttercream on the dressing table. When I painted them both in Dropcloth, the table looked much darker, like it wasn’t even the same color:
It’s kind of hard to tell in that photo, but they look much closer now.
I lightly sanded here and there and sealed with Annie Sloan’s Clear soft wax.
I recovered the chair pad with this pretty soft damask fabric I found on clearance years ago at Hancock Fabrics:
Since I covered right over the blue, I used some drapery liner that was left from this chair makeover to help hide the blue:
Piping always adds such a nice finishing detail. I reused the old piping to make the new piping for this chair:
See my how-to for making and adding piping to chairs HERE. There is a SEW and a NO-SEW version!
I used my cordless Ryobi hot glue gun to attach it to the underside of the chair:
I dropped this set off at my booth on Saturday. I decided to price the chair separately just in case someone wanted a more petite chair for this dressing table, but I think they work well together!
Not too shabby for a $10 thrift store find that I bought for a spooky display!
See? Too many photos for one post! 🙂
I’m finally filling that booth of mine back up! 🙂
UPDATE: See how this beauty of a hutch looks now HERE!
