Are you sitting in your office right now? Is your chair sporting an oatmeal colored fabric so inoffensive it’s offensive? Then I’ve got the perfect makeover for YOU! Check out this stunner from Griffin at Design Itch. And why not try it out for yourself, your cubicle-mates will be overcome with jealousy and wonder!
Have a sentimental antique you can’t bear to part with, nor look at? Then I’ve got the perfect makeover for YOU too! Kelly was sad that this vintage chair was hiding all of its cool dragon-scale like carvings under a sticky and glittery coat of black paint.
So she slowly chipped and stripped it away, at times using dental tools and toothbrushes to get into all the nooks and crannies, until she realized that it would probably look pretty darn awesome (and save her sanity) to just leave it there. Doesn’t it look cool against the blonde wood? Great choice Kelly! See it on her blog The Ridiculous Redhead.
Wait, let me guess. You have an IKEA folding chair lying around that could use a little pick-me-up. Oh yeah, I’ve got the perfect makeover for YOU too! What are the odds?! Check out what Amalia at Linescapes did with this plain old thing, it practically looks like a piece of art now.
“Aww man,” you are thinking to yourself. “I don’t have any old chairs to makeover. All I have is a crummy old ottoman that is falling apart because I got suckered in by all that bonded leather talk at the furniture store. Hmmph. I bet there’s not a perfect makeover for ME.”
Hold your horses, girlfriend. I HAVE got the perfect makeover for you, and it comes from Tara at Suburble,who knows and understands your bonded leather pain. Head on over to her blog for a quick lesson on why to never buy the stuff, and a simple no-sew tutorial on how to hide it when it inevitably falls apart!
“OK wise guy,” you are now thinking. “What about me? I have an ottoman covered in Shih Tzu! You heard me. Do you have the perfect makeover for ME? Ha! I didn’t think so!”
Well, first of all, calm yourself down. And second of all, um YEAH. Of course I have the perfect makeover for you. It comes from Jen at Girl In The Garage who told her ottoman she wasn’t going to put up with any more of its Shih Tzu, and recovered it in a fun Suzani pattern and matching nailhead trim instead.
Now. Let’s continue. Have a retired rocker reupholstered in grandpas flannels? You guessed it. I have the perfect makeover for you. From Georgie at Writing to the Sound of Legos Clacking who made a drastic difference in the life of this chair with nothing more than fabric and paint.
And finally, do you have a disgustingly rotting chair carcass that would probably be best to set on fire? Before you get out the matches, let me just tell you something. I’ve got the perfect makeover for YOU! See how Cara saved this chair corpse? It can be done! See how on her blog The Project Addict.
