Chair baby, chair mama, every-chair daddy daddy, CHAIRS!
Are you feeling somewhat bleary-eyed today?  Is it because maybe you stayed up all night to watch Breaking Dawn?  I’m way too cool for such things myself.  Just kidding, I was like the first in line.  But I feel a little old to be going to midnight showings, I can barely function today. I also feel a lot too old to be ogling Jacob’s abs, but whatever.  Let’s talk about chairs.
Big bunch of sweet chair makeovers coming your way!  Something for everyone here, pick your fave!
Nothing cuter than a happy pink chair!  Except Jacob’s abs.  (Oh, I’m only kidding!)

From Brooke at Being Brook.

think this chair was previously upholstered in muppet skins, but
Brittainy brought it back to life with a pretty paisley floral.  I like
that the colors stayed true to the original, but minus all the

This one by Robin at Madison Modern Home
might be my favorite.  I love black and white and I think the choice of
fabric works nicely with the simple straight lines of the chair.  I’m
also in love with the price tag: $12! 

Here’s one more from Robin, or should I say three more?  Probably, since
there are three of them. Not one more.  Three more. Yes?  No?  Leave me
alone, I’m sleep deprived!  See more HERE.

I love this one from Katie at Strawbridge Stuff, it reminds me of pajamas.  No, I’m not projecting here, it really does!  I think it’s the stripes. 

And finally, Brittany discovers a hidden talent when she decided to reupholster a chair for the first time in her life and it turns out beautifully.  That makes me wonder … what if I’m really good at something that I’ve never tried?  Like, what if I’m actually a secret tennis pro or a computer programming genius?  (Judging by the amount of tries it took me to spell “computer” right just now, that is probably not the case).   I’m going to take a nap.

    Hard as it is to believe, I think you might actually be even funnier when you are sleep deprived, which is saying a lot. “Muppet skins.” Hahaha! I’m going to have that pop into my head now every time I see cheap, crushed velvet.

    I love both of those black and white combo chairs. What a transformation!

    I’m not a fan of pink but I LOVE that pink chair and the fabric she chose! It’s bold, bright and cheery and looks absolutely terrific.

    The comment about muppet skins was hilarious to me… mostly because all of my living room furniture looks like that: 2 chairs and a loveseat that rocks. No really, it’s also a rocker, which always surprises people when they sit in it. I don’t know if I love it so much because furniture from the 60’s is the right size for someone only 5’2″ or because it reminds me of my great-grandma’s old furniture. I love, love, love chairs and love these chair re-dos. And I love my muppet skinned, harvest gold, crushed velvet living room furniture… even if everyone else asks me when I’m going to replace it:)

    Oh, I loved them all but the last one I want in my home. Hope you enjoyed your nap. I am going to see Breaking Dawn…as soon as I can get my granddaughter to go with me. How would it look for a 60 year old to go alone???

    They are all great. I really like the black and white toile and the pink one, and the last one, and the….(like I said they’re all great).

    Just one tiny little thing, does anyone else see a face (like maybe a wolf??) on the back of the last chair? Or am I just seeing things??? It’s happened before! 🙂 LOL!

    muppet skins… hahahaha!

    My husband has asked me on more than one occasion, “What’s so funny about that furniture?” 🙂

    I love all of these chairs. The harp back chairs (3) I thought might have been from my mom’s dining room from years ago. I have a cane back chair I am going to attemt to re-design….my first try. I feel pretty good about everything but the piping around the cusion. Piping SCARES me!!!!

    Love them all! Thanks for the feature. I love the black one too…although I didn’t think the “before” was all that bad either! 🙂
