C's New Chair

As you all know, I have been hard at work redecorating C's room. The latest addition is a new chair to go with her newly painted desk.

Here's the chair I started with:
My neighbor was having a garage sale last weekend and wanted $50 for her. Uhhh, no thanks! Big K went back later on his own and bought her for $15. That man can bargain with the best of them!

C chose this fabric to go with her new aqua walls:

I took the yucky old tapestry fabric off the chair and spray painted her a glossy white.

Here's how she looks with her new fabric:

And at her new desk:

I know the style of the desk and chair are pretty different, but I still think they look good for a 6-year old's room. Good fabric choice C! I probably wouldn't have picked it myself, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?

I have been looking for a similar chair for my craft room! I love the modern fabric and the vintage style of the chair! Looks awesome!

I have the identical chair in my attic It came from my beloved great Aunt, but didn't go with my decor so I stuck it up there. I am going to pull it out this weekend and get to working on it! I wouldn't have dared to paint that victorian chair until I saw what you did, so thank you! Now I will have a daily reminder of my favorite Aunt. Yea!

LOVE it! I bought a chair to go next to a dresser I just redid for our entryway & needless to say it's TOO BIG! :( But in my mind, this is what it would have been similar to :) PERFECT for a 6 year old!!

Lisa said...

I think the chair and desk work well together. Love that fabric for a kids room. It's so bright and cheery. You're great at refinishing furniture. I'm jealous!!!

Found you via Savvy Southern Style. That is such a cute chair. Well done! One question though....was the cushion removable? How did you attach the new fabric to the chair? It has a very finished look and I'm curious how you did it? Thanks!!

Sweet Tea said...

The fabric looks FUN - perfect for a child's room!

Linda said...

Great bargain. Great choice of fabric.

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!!!!!

Suzy www.savedbysuzy.blogspot.com said...

Joy, the cushion is not removable. All you do is staple your fabric to the side of the chair (where the cushion or batting meets the wood). Then you cover the staples with a strip of fabric. YOu can also get fancy and cover it with corded welting, gimp, or other trims. Very simple!
