Chair Makeover

When I bought this chair I thought... paint it white, drop a potted plant into the open seat and place it on my front doorstep.  


 But that didn't happen....this did...


From a piece of plywood my husband fashioned a seat and I covered it with my favorite fabric (which I think is actually bedding material - but who knows because I don't even know the name of it...remember this post!)


This was my kind of project - the chair is petite so it took no time at all :)

Diane, it's gorgeous, but I do have to say, it was so cool before too, with the deep gray and rustic chipped paint. I love what you did with it. I save bits of fabric I find as well for just such a project. Wonderful!

Hi Diane,
I love this curvy little crusty chair and that fabric is just perfect. I wish Mr. Sissy was handy like that.
