Completed Chair

Ok ... so I couldn't wait. I bet most of you guessed that. I couldn't wait for the dinning room reveal to show you the finished dinning chair.

 So lets just call this the dinning room chair reveal. 

I chose a wonderful grey and cream floral ... the picture on my dinning room design board doesn't do it justice. It really pops against the antique white of the chair.

I really love how your eye gets drawn to the light colored floral on the seat, I think that is what makes it work so well with the new finish of the chair.


one more look at where this chair started.

Sometimes being thrifty really pays off. I don't even think I recognize this chair any more. You just have to love paint !


It is going to be real hard slip covering over this chair for spring and summer... ok who am I kidding ... Its just a slip cover and I will most likely enjoy the versatility.
I hope you like the change as much as I do.


For all those who asked about the fabric ... It is an Ethan Allen Fabric, Alaura Charcoal .
