As a part of the Project ReStyle endeavor, here is my first submission! I acquired some french provincial style chairs from a second hand shop with a goal in mind... to make a kitchen dining set like this super expensive Italian custom made one, only much much cheaper:
There were six chairs in total, all upholstered with a dated white/pink fabric and painted an off-white colour. I decided to "Restyle" four of the six chairs, as that would be all I needed. I still have two left to use my creativity on! To start this project, I had to rip the old fabric off. Thankfully, the cushioning underneath was in great shape, so I was able to reuse it when reupholstering it. I painted the wood a deep purple colour before adding the new fabric. I finished the cushions off with a nice gimp trim to match.
Here is how it all turned out, before and after:
I opted for a funkier green checkerboard pattern fabric as opposed to the expensive green leather in the above example. I love it as it gives the chairs a bit more of a "custom" (almost Alice in Wonderland) feel! I grabbed a second hand solid oak table to match, and did a little paint magic on it.
Check back next week for another Restyle project! p.s. there is still ONE MORE DAY to enter my photo giveaway!!!
