Do you have a piece of furniture that has a special meaning to you?
My dad had a stroke in 1995. My sister and I took turns caring for him. Yesterday was the 7 year anniversary of his passing.
My kitchen chairs are on wheels. Too dangerous for my dad to try and sit down. We found a set of chairs and I took one and my sis kept one for her house. They had this ugly brown velvet on the seat cushion.
After my dad passed I put the chair away. Recently I painted my kitchen a sunny yellow. I needed a chair for the desk area and remembered the ugly chair my dad used for so many years.
This is what it looked like before I gave it a makeover. I had forgotten to take a before picture and my sis was kind enough to snap a picture of her chair.
I started out priming the chair. I used a primer with stain blocker, applying 2 coats for good coverage. I wanted something nice and bright. Since my kitchen was yellow I thought it would be a good choice for the chair. I found this cute fabric with the colors in my kitchen.
I love how my chair turned out. I think of my dad every time I look at it and I think he would have loved it too.
until next time.....
