A couple of weeks ago, I also posted about my current color crush: Habanero Chile. I included a screen shot from Real Simple featuring this quote "In a glossy finish, it will make a grannyish chair look cool and modern."
Well, with some TLC, fun fabric, and this awesome paint color, my estate sale find has gotten quite a facelift!
Unfortunately I don't have any "before" photos to share with you (what was I thinking?) but I can give you an idea of what it looked like when I found it: very dark stained wood with a needlepoint seat cover. I actually found something similar here. Very granny, right?
Here is a close-up of the floral detail on the top of the chair. So nicely crafted.
While I was busy painting, my mom and sister-in-law recovered the seat cushion with this black and white ikat fabric. (Thanks, guys!)
I'm not sure if it's cool and modern, but this piece is definitely spicy. I love how cute my granny chair is now!
