Andrew and I recently had a Saturday morning off together. Shocker, I know! Junk shopping is one of our favorite time wasters, so we decided to drive around the neighborhood to visit a few yard sales. There's always something amusing, something useful and something with potential hidden amongst the not-so-amusing, useful and potential filled. Case in point, this amazing chair that we snagged for a mere $5. Are the lines not fabulous?!
The original seat cushion was tired and torn (sorry for the lack of BEFORE picture) so I decided to try my first reupholstery job. I used this tutorial on Design Sponge as a guide and went for it! I'm super pleased for my first go around. The entire chair, including purchase price, cost me a whopping $23. Not bad!
I've thought about painting it, but I kind of like the distressed feel of the piece. What do you think? Should I paint it or leave it?
