Craigslist Chair Makeover

I found this chair on Craigslist for $20. A few coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint and new upholstery job later, here she is.A fun floral print motif fabric on the front and a navy chevron on the back and hand rest. I used the nail head trim and double welt cord (sewn by your truly sewing novice) to cover up the staples. ‪ More @

    That looks stunning! I actually have a chair like the original. I bought it in a thrift store. Did not know what to do with it. Might try something like that. Thanks.
