Tale of the ugly chair

Ahhhhhhh!!!! I want to pull out my hair and bang my head on the wall a hundred times!!!! I was uploading all my recent pics onto my computer and accidently erased them all!!! Bye all Logan's first t-ball pics and bye all those pics for my next tutorial! Someone please cry with me! (It will make me feel better!)
So anyways, since I have lost all the pictures for the post I was going to do, I guess I will post an older project of mine.
This is to prove the power of spray paint (for those of you who are not converted yet!) This chair is one I picked up out of the gutter in Logan probably 8 years ago. And I'm ashamed to say it took me 6 years to get around to doing anything with it! First I just took off the seat, (easy, just unscrew the screws on the bottom). Second, I lightly sanded the whole chair just to rough it up a bit. Then I used cheap 99 cent black spray paint from Walmart! It only took two coats (about 1/2 a can) Here are the before pics- beauty huh?





After I spray painted the chair, I recovered the chair with 1/2 a yard of fabric, some cording, and a chunk of styrofoam from JoAnns. (I just stapled the fabric to the wood bottom)



I LOVE it!!! Seriously, spray paint is my best friend!

Spray paint is my best friend too, but I'm also loving the black and white Damask print fabric too. ;) Awesome makeover.
