I love finding or buying an old unloved vintage chair for next to nothing and transforming it into something with a little french flair - all it takes is drop sheet, paint, a staple gun and some patience!
I have finally finished the second chair that I bought a few weeks ago from the markets for $20. I ended up doing it in the same design as the little french chair I did for my friend's daughter's birthday. I ended up doing a lot of work on this chair as I stripped back the old paint as it was very yellow and showed through the "Limed White" paint I used when I distressed the edges. There were also a lot of rusty old tacks holding in the material which were hard to remove but I eventually got rid of the all.
I used a canvas drop sheet for the material and handpainted the stripes and fleur de lys.
I'll be selling this on eBay.
