Blue chairs


Here are the blue chairs I wanted to refinish. I got them off craigslist, of course, but didn't like the color blue they were sporting. When I started sanding them, I found they had once been black, red, green, yellow and then the original wood. Needless to say, I gave up on that and just slapped yet another coat of cream paint on the top followed by some stain.

I wanted them to be very neutral so I reupholstered the seats in some muslin and made these covers for the back. I am thinking about painting a design or some numbers on the back like I saw on someone's blog. What do you guys think?


  1. Where's the NUMBERS? Where's the NUMBERS? I love love love these, your ruffles turned out so cute.

  2. wow, i'm impressed, that was a pretty ugly chair and you made it SUPER cute! Yep, when we get a house you'll have to come help decorate!
