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.
Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented chose this beauty for her very first reupholstering project. She found it for FREE off Craigslist and instantly saw the potential in its tiny little ad photo. Her husband, on the other hand, was of course shaking his head and questioning how anything beautiful could ever come of the eyesore.
Over at Batchelors Way, Ronda snagged this bankers style chair at her local Salvation Army for just $5! The vinyl on the arms and seat were in pretty bad shape, but it was structurally sound. Ronda was determined to put in in her office.
At The Happy Tulip, Amy confesses that she'd been without a desk chair for quite some time, and was hoping to find an inexpensive replacement. When she drove past this wobbly little chair on the curbside, it was love at first sight--Amy knew she'd found her desk chair.
Jennifer, who blogs at City Farmhouse, was out on her morning jog when she spotted these cane chairs in a curbside garbage pile. She'd been eyeing similar chairs online and at Home Goods, so she was thrilled to rescue them from the trash. She took them home for a makeover.
