I'm linking to Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Fridayhttp://missmustardseed.blogspot.com/2011/03/furniture-feature-friday-favorites-link_17.html This has to be one of my favorite chair re-dos of all time. When we took this old chair apart, my painter/restorer/fixer( aka hubby)found horsehair under the upholstery it was so old. So... I kindly kept that horsehair in place as I brought my chair into the 21st century, covering the seat with a burlap sack that I had stenciled. I loved this chair!!

I love chairs!! Big chairs, little chairs, soft chairs even hard chairs! I especially love having an odd chair sitting around a room. I love having a spare chair in the bedroom, where you can sit to put on your shoes or stack some laundry. I love having a spare chair in the kitchen to pull up for an extra person to join us for a meal! I love having an odd chair in my keeping room where I use it as a side table for a cup of coffee or an unfinished book!Here I took a simple odd chair, added a little paint and a 1/2 yard of cute fabric and made it look so different!!

I continue to be amazed at the difference a can of spray paint can make in an object. This vanity chair we just finished was a brassy gold from the 1980's when we started! Now a light coat of silver spray paint and some girlie "high heel" fabric for a new cushion and we've got a winner!What have you transformed lately?
