French Provincial Chair Makeover {Best of the Archives!}

Welcome to Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Usually my T2T Tuesday pals and I bring you only ONE new makeover the second Tuesday of each month as part of this series, but this month we decided why not dig through our archives, find our favorites, and share one EVERY Tuesday this month? I've picked a few that I just love! If you missed what I picked to share last week, it was my Farmhouse Hutch and you can see it HERE. Today I am so excited to share my French Provincial Chair makeover with you! … [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...]

Upholstering a French Provincial Chair

Who out there has a chair in need of a serious wardrobe change? I do I do! Or at least I did. My Mom passed on a set of French Provincial chairs to me that she picked up at an estate sale. They were so bad, ya'll. Many of you know exactly what chairs I'm referring to. These lovelies: Only they weren't always so lovely... Were they? If you can't tell, the fabric has a terrible paint job. I posted this makeover back in the fall and I had many requests to see the how-to on the … [Read more...]

How to Make Double Welting for Upholstery {without double welting cord}

When I shared my French Provincial Chair Makeover recently, I had several people interested in seeing how I did it.  It seems there are a lot of upholstery projects waiting for their big makeovers out there! I am not a professional. In fact this was my first upholstery project of this magnitude, so if I can figure it out, you definitely can too! Today I am sharing how I made the welting that finishes off the edges so nicely. Then I will soon follow up with the chair upholstery. There are too … [Read more...]

Upholstered Headboard

Hi all! I found this gorgeous headboard on a Facebook yard sale group a couple of months ago and had to go see it. A local upholstering company was selling it out of their warehouse. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was coming home with me, only it was  four days later. It was so big, there was no way it was going to fit into my SUV, so I had to end up picking it up with my hubby's truck...on my birthday! It was listed at $75, but the girl selling it took my offer of $60. What a steal! It's … [Read more...]
