My Mid-century chair...

Hi, I told you better pics would be comin' soon, and here they are!

I found this mid century chair at Goodwill for $15...

I plan to sand the wood down to it's natural form and clear coat...

...and recover the fabric parts possibly in a houndstooth or plaid...

I love the shape of the arms...

Can't wait to get started!

Mid century CHAIR DIY

I found the most perfect mid century chair for $15 at my local Goodwill! 
Sorry the pic is fuzzy, I'll post more later...

I've been searching for a chair that's comfortable enough to sit in for a while, petit enough for my tiny living room and small enough to move around for multiple functions...I found it!

I was inspired a while back when I discovered a photo of  fellow blogger, Lil' Miss Snooty Pants' lovely living room.

At the risk of being a TOTAL copycat, I'd like to re-cover my chair in houndstooth as well, but strip the wood down to it's original blonde shade and clear coat it.

Stay posted for the AFTER!

Howdy folks!

I've had these done for a while, but I loaned out my camera and just now got it back, so here they are!  The pics are not very good, I took them last night cause I couldn't wait.  I'll take some more after the room is clean and decorated, in better, natural light.

I used the leftover paint from my kitchen cabinets, so as you can see the color is not true in the pics, it's a light turquoise shade.

Here's some detail...I was goin' to find new handles until I saw the finished project...I love the silver handles with the turquoise paint!

Better pics comin' soon!
