Ugly Goodwill Chair Gets A Facelift

This could possibly be...the ugliest chair ever. I found it at Goodwill last week for $14. I thought it had good bones so into the car it went.



Here is the before





And the after

I gave her a facelift with coat of white paint and recovered her with bleached dropcloth fabric. I also picked up an antique twin bed with a curved footboard for $39. I'm planning on redoing it to match the chair. It would be so cute in a little girls room. 

Thanks for stopping by...
have a wonderful week

What an awesome transformation. I see these kinds of chairs, but can't reupholster them myself so I pass them up. i think I really need to learn. You do an amazing job.

Take care,

Kathleen
