Marcella Rose (who blogs at Marcella Rose’s) “found these stunning vintage wrought iron chairs on the side of the street” in New York City. Since then they’ve traveled across the country with her and now they are due for a makeover, which she’s sharing at My Crafty Spot. Marcella says she likes to change these seats up a couple times a year. I personally love the spiderwebs, but I agree that summer calls for a lighter look!
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.
Doesn’t everyone’s grandma have a stool in her kitchen just like this one? “This actually was my grandmother’s stool,” says Sheryl at Red Tin Inn. “My parents had stored it in a building, that they kept the pool chemicals in, and major rust had set in.”
When Sara, from Thrifty Treasures, found this footstool, it was looking pretty frumpy. Faded upholstery in a dated fabric covered a lumpy, bumpy shape. There was something about the shape of the little claw feet, though, that made her think the stool had some possibilities.
Marty has been documenting her kitchen remodel at Marty’s Musings. While she’d successfully fixed up her kitchen table, the old cane chairs that went with it were still a problem. The caning had worn out long ago, and the only solution available was ill-fitting slipcovers.
Over at How Joyful, Joy had an office chair that was pretty beat up, and she didn’t like the dark leather look of it. But the chair was still so comfortable to sit in that she decided to give it another chance before throwing it out.
Jessica of Cutesy Crafts has had this settee sitting in her entryway for over a year now. “Hello, welcome tomy house the 80s!” she jokes. It was time for a makeover.
Mary Anne of Purposely Reinvented came across these armless chairs on Craigslist. No surprise that they were in the free section!
