Remember the chairs that I had picked up at Thrifting Day?
I had one chair down and here is what it looked like updated...
I had Sherwin Williams do a color match of Blue Fjord by Olympic.
I decided it was time to tackle the armchair mostly because I was excited to change up the fabric on the seat.
Here is what the chair looked like when I bought it.
The stain was really dull and the upholstered seat was screaming for some new fabric. I painted the chair the same color as the other chair to keep it consistent.
Here is what the armchair looks like now, and I *LOVE* it!
It's quite the bold choice in fabric I made isn't it? But I knew I wanted something different and I knew that I wanted to try to tie in the other colors we have going on in the house - greens and oranges. In our next home maybe I'd do something pretty and floral, but this house is all about bold color.
The fabric is A New Twist in seaweed by Waverly, and I got it from Fabric.com.

Here are some more pictures of the armchair now.
There are so many great fabrics out there that I could have chosen, and even more now as I look through different sites but overall I'm very happy with how the chair turned out. It's really been brought back to life with a little paint and some new fabric - amazing what just a little bit can do.
I did have some trouble painting the caning. It took multiple coats and I actually ended up touching it up a few times with the smallest sponge tool I could find which worked out well.
Does anyone have any tips for painting caning?
This chair is now sitting happily in our dining area. Are you working on any furniture updates?
Next up for me is tackling our dresser and nightstand, which is part of our master makeover. I hope to show you the design board for that soon.
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
