Funky to French - Chalk Paint Project

This beat up little chair was a rescue over 20 years ago. I don't remember what it looked like when my husband brought it home. It's first makeover at our house was a light pink paint job on the wood and a small pink and blue floral print on cushion with a pink ruffle. I probably have a picture somewhere if I want to dig through albums because that was BEFORE the digital picture age.  So you know we've had this solid little seat around our house for many years.

The next makeover was done by my daughters and was indescribable - I can just let the picture speak for this FUNKY look.  The girls did the paint, I made the zebra cover and the ruffle with the bling.

Because I already had this chair and wanted it to coordinate,
I painted it and recovered the cushion 
even though I had learned after painting the last chair that I don't really like painting chairs. 

I think this makeover was a big improvement. (although it made baby girl a little sad)  
She agreed to let me give it a makeover when I told her that if we left it funky - 
 it was going in her bedroom.

I think we gave this simple old rescued chair a new touch of class.

I don't like it as well as this semi-matching one, but it's much much less funky!

Much Love & Laughter,

That's a very interesting chair evolution. I don't like painting chairs either, but this one was worth it! ~ Maureen
