Chair Makeover

Even though my husband thought this chair was "old" and would go nice in a more formal setting, I quickly accepted my mother-in-law's offer when she wanted to give it to me.  I loved it!  It had so much character!  All it needed was some cute fabric and a paint job.  Check it out...

Chair in its original state.  GREAT condition!

I put two coats of paint on it.  
(I hated to paint over the nice wood, but it just didn't look good with my new fabric.)

Found this fabric for 50% off!

I didn't take the other fabric off, I just stapled this on top of it.  It definitely took a bit longer than I anticipated, but I got it done in about 45 minutes (WITH a toddler running around!)  She did however spill the cat's water all over the kitchen floor.  ha!

You can see the chair in this picture I took of the T.V. cabinet makeover.  I haven't made a pillow for it yet, but I'll get to that soon.  :)  I may still distress it as well, but for now I am busy tackling other projects.  After all, I just realized the other day that I am already in my THIRD trimester!  Where did the time go?

P.S...I love how the bird in the painting is the same color as one of the stripes in the chair.  Funny how it matched so perfectly.
