The Captains Chair Makeover – Industrial Style!

I picked up this chair at a local op shop / thrift store for next to nothing. Literally. Why? Someone had been stabbing it with scissors or some other sharp implement and had not only ruined the seat but had made huge holes in the wood. You can just make out the gouges in the arm rests – awful right?

SIGH. I have no idea why someone would want to destroy such a beautiful chair, but it made a great buy for me and my next project! And here it is!

My husband commented to me that alot of the painted furniture he’d seen was a bit on the feminine side. While I don’t agree, I wanted to use this chair to create something I thought he would use in his office.

I’ve recovered the seat in an old coffee sack, and painted the chair a flat black. I’ve seen so many great projects using black lately that I wanted to give it a try. And I’m pretty impressed with how it worked out!

So what about you? Do you agree with DK that painted furniture can be a little on the feminine side? Or have you given a bit of black paint a try recently?
