Retro Restyling – a Chair Makeover

I found this chair, quite literally, and was originally thinking I’d just sell it ‘as is’ for someone else to make over. I have SO much in my garage that it just seemed to be a good idea. Then sorting through my fabric I found a gorgeous graphic piece that I thought would be perfect and the chair suddenly worked its way to the top of the list.

The original vinyl was covered in paint (not me I promise!) and a layer of grime, but now I think she’s looking pretty good

Ok – I know you’re thinking that butlers tray needs some paint. It’s on the list!

For me the fabric makes all the difference… the style is gorgeous but vinyl doesn’t really do it for me! This beautiful fabric was given to me by a very dear friend and her Mum – if your reading along thank you MJ and Judith!

I tried to convince DK (my husband) that this would be perfect for his desk but he has this giant monstrosity of an office that he likes. I’m not even going to share a photo of it it’s that bad. The kids have even drawn on it and he still loves it. One day when he’s not looking it may just disappear…

The chair is very Parker-esq but I’m not sure. I haven’t been able to match it to anything I’ve seen on line, and there are no details anywhere I can see on the actual chair. Still, I don’t think it needs a brand to make it beautiful, just a re-stain and new fabric!
Thanks for stopping by…
