Sweet Pea Chair

I think chairs are my favorite before and after, mostly because it's usually a pretty dramatic redo. New fabric + paint can make such a difference!

This chair had been used as one of our kitchen chairs for about 9 months. I had this dream of recovering all of them (none matched, but I planned on making them unified with paint), but I found 4 matching chairs at Goodwill on Monday. All nearly new from Pier 1 for $7 each. So this lady needed a makeover:

I had a can of Rustoleum Sweet Pea in my stash and I thought this chair would make a great school auction item for a little girl!

That pink is so sweet with the black and white.Very sophisticated. Love the chair but especially love the pillow. Do you have a tutorial for that ? Please forgive me for being a pillow nut. Found your blog via a link tonight so had to subscribe. Thanks for letting us see your gorgeous chair (and pillow).

Srpprcrftr, the pillow was done by Sommer @ Designergarden.blogspot.com. She's fabulous!
