Guess what day it is??? Themed furniture makeover day!! Once a month some of my furniture painting gal pals get together and do themed painted furniture projects. This month’s theme? Chairs.
Who doesn’t have a chair that needs a facelift? This one was in our garage patiently waiting for me to give it a little makeover. And it’s perfect for my studio/craft room.

Giving a facelift to a chair can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint. This solid oak chair I found at the thrift shop needed a little more TLC, but it still wasn’t all that difficult.
It was missing all of the wheels, and one of the sockets had been removed and left some damage.
After two unsuccessful stops, I went to our locally owned hardware store and they had exactly what I was looking for. You can also find them here.
I hammered the new socket into the hole where the old one had been removed and then inserted the wheels into all four sockets. Easy as pie.
After a good cleaning with this cleaner, it got 2 coats of Benjamin Moore White Dove paint, eggshell finish.
I had a small pillow form and a yard of a pretty bright yellow fabric so I made a pillow to add a bit of color to it.
When I get tired of the yellow, it will be easy to make another small pillow to replace this one.
It has great lines and is very sturdy and comfortable too! I’ve seen ones almost identical to this at Pottery Barn for $429 plus delivery. This one cost less than $50 including all the paint, wheels, and even the pillow and fabric (I got those as swag from Online Fabric Store at the Haven conference). Pretty sweet, huh?
And the nice thing about painting it white is that it goes with any color I put with it!
