I've been feeling super inspired by all the thrifty crafty DIY and fabulous revamp blogs I've been reading. So I gathered up my spending cash (less than $20.00 - whoopadeedoo....can you buy ANYTHING anymore for less than twenty bucks?), pawned the kids off on my dear hubby, jumped in the car and headed to our local Goodwill store for some thrifting therapy.
I eagerly browsed around looking for something horrible and decrepit with a splash of potential.
There was one fabulous chair that I passed up because it was too expensive.
Goodness gracious, HELLO POTENTIAL!
I was muchly thrilled. And even better? The stingy dutch woman living inside of me (Hi, Mrs. Stinginess, I know you are in there) was pleased as punch to see a price tag of $3.99.
I picked this sucker up for less than a Starbucks Venti Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Can ya tell I was slightly ecstatic? I wheeled my chair-laden goodwill cart proudly, wondering if the other patrons were kicking themselves for passing up my treasure.
The seat fabric? Detestable. Fuzzy orange with shiny gold stripes:
Yeah, I named my cowtastic screwdriver Bessie.
Yanked that seat off, threw the fabric DIRECTLY into the garbage, then sanded, primed and spray painted that chair to gorgeousness:
I added a bunch of batting layers to the squashed seat pad:
Stapled on some fantastic new fabric (that cost more than the chair), Bessie reattached the seat and voila!
Meet Mrs. Previously Goodwill Drab, now known as Miss Sassy N. FAB:
I have a slight obsession with green. I actually gasped OUT LOUD in the fabric store when I saw this bit o green gloriousness.
