A Springy Chair and End Table

Cara and I are preparing for our first big furniture sale at a community yard sale day this Saturday, so we’re busy, busy, busy finishing up some last projects and getting stuff together, but I thought I’d post the reveal of the chair and end table that I teased you with the other day.  If you remember, the horrid 70’s-ness of the duo:

P1030043 

The disgusting “upholstery” was actually more grody on the reverse side of the “fabric.”  It was covered in a brown kind of rubberish stuff that looked and felt like dirt.  (…shudder…)  Thankfully, it’s gone forever, and in it’s place is this cheerful and springy floral print.

Hope your Spring is off to a great start!

  21. You were so brave for taking these ugly, dated pieces on and they look fantastic. The fresh coat of white paint, bright fabric, and light distressing are just what they needed.
