My 1st Attempt

I rescued a chair!!! That's right.....dumpster diving!!! Just kidding! I did rescue a chair from the giant truck that eats the things people don't want though.

I had just decided to look for a chair that no one wanted anymore (on one of those famous websites) and wouldn't you know, my neighbor put one out for trash the very next week. So really I just picked it up off the side of the alley and put it in my garage.....thrilling, I know. So here are the before and after pictures.

Before:

After:


I wanted vinyl with a "funky or loud" pattern, but the store I went to didn't have quite what I was looking for. So I will keep my eye open and maybe change the seat later.

Here's the run down:
Chair Free
Paint $8
Vinyl $3
Foam $3__
Total $14

great job!!!! It looks fabulous!!! I picked a chair up this week too, I didn't redo it, I put it in my flower bed and set a pot of flowers on it!!

I'll be looking for more great "makeovers" in the future!!

okay...totally impressed. Seriously. Love it!

How was the sanding part? That's the part that causes me to 'back up slowly' when considering any of these projects. And I have quite a few of them in my home already. No need to look elsewhere.

Be still my beating heart. :) It looks awesome! And now you'll never look at trash day the same way again...in whatever neighborhood you're driving in. It's a sickness. Welcome. :) I LOVE your chair makeover!
