Briana’s family owns a paint store. She’s been working on updating the store decor, trying to showcase some of the fantastic color options they offer. These chairs are available for customers to sit down, but they were looking a little dowdy. She shares the makeover at Posh Purpose.
“When my uncle was clearing out his basement he gave met his little vintage child’s chair that he found,” says Shanna at Restoration Redoux. The chair was ornately carved but was banged up and had stained upholstery.
At Our Southern Home, Christy had an old set of antique iron furniture she’d purchased fifteen years ago from an ad in the newspaper. “These chairs have been sitting in the loft of our barn for over ten years!” Christy confessed.
Over at My Weekly Habit, Kristi had a well-used, yet sturdy, old wicker chair. “We actually use it when I am out front with the kids or when one of us is waiting for someone to come,” Kristi says.
Over at Creative Ramblings, Sarah’s deck needed a facelift for the summer. Since she had two sturdy plastic chairs in need of a little love, Sarah freshened them up to give her deck the perfect touch.
Sometimes a piece of furniture is fine as it is….other than it just doesn’t look right in the space you have for it. That was the problem with this wicker chair in a corner of Christina’s bedroom. “My inner battle was that the chair’s finish was pretty as-is. It just didn’t go with the room,” she tells us on her blog, Operation Home.
Sarah from Homeology was excited to update her outdoor spaces this year. Unfortunately, an unanticipated air conditioner replacement put a big dent in her budget. Sarah was forced to put some of her updates on the backburner and cut corners on the others. She was able to have her gorgeous mid century modern deck chairs professionally refinished, but really didn’t want to put faded cushions on such pretty chairs.
At her blog, Counting Willows, Michelle had four of these red saddle stools. “They were everywhere for a while, and for good reason,” she points out. “They are inexpensive, don’t take up much space and you can put them just about anywhere.”
