A Walk on the Wild Side

I love arm chairs. LOVE them. Can't resist them at Goodwill and garage sales. I love a pair of arm chairs even more, but that's a rare find. I picked this one up a few months ago and hadn't been inspired....until this week. I found this fabric in the remnant bin...I don't typically love animal prints....but this is elegantly understated. The paint is Heirloom White by Rustoleum. Gosh I love Heirloom White!!

Take a look at the before photo:



Yikes! Outdated to say the least! I guess that's what $6.99 will get ya!



But here's what some spray paint, new fabric and a little elbow grease will get you!




What do you think?

Boy that chair was ugly at first glance. But you've done wonders with it! It looks so lovely - and expensive!
