Hello everyone! Long time no talk. I took a weekend off from blogging and work and spent it at my parents' house. You might be thinking that I didn't do anything or have anything to report on. Wrong! My parents (yes, both mom and dad) and I crafted and sewed and thrift store shopped and painted the weekend away. I have at least a week worth of projects up my sleeve. First up, is this director chair overhaul.
$2 at a garage sale, consider it sold. And since I plan to use some on sale fabric and spray paint, this will be a thrifty chair makeover. First I took it apart and painted the frame a pale yellow. Sorry for the bad photo. Bright sun and my iPhone don't get along well.
Then I used the existing canvas pieces as a pattern for a new back and seat. I bought some duck fabric on sale for about $4. It is a really cute pattern and perfect for this chair. So after a trial and error sewing session, I had the new back and seat made. I put the chair back together and was tickled with how funky it looks. I love it!
Much better than the faded black canvas and bare wood before.
Project cost breakdown:
Spray Paint $2
I love a cheap makeover. And this is just one of many completed this past weekend. I have many more thrifty projects to share in the next few days.
Have you scored any great garage sale finds lately? Have you made over a director chair too?
