Chair Makeover

Last week, The Goodwill Gal posted a chair that she found at Goodwill for $9.99 (bargain!). She asked her readers how they might freshen it up, so I decided to offer my spin on it!

Here’s the fabulous chair:

And, here’s my take:

I would paint the frame Dynamic Blue and recover the cushions in the Oxford Stripe. Then, just for fun, I would make a toss pillow out of the Honeycomb Pink to give it a punch.

If you were up-cycling this chair, what would you do?

Enjoying the Good Life,



  1. LOVE your idea.
    I might paint it an eggshell white and recover it in a grey/slate grey velvet fabric.

    • Nicole, Those colors would go perfectly in every room of my house. I’m putting this idea on the list of possibilities.

    • Oh good! Glad I could help!!

      I still have 2 chairs sitting in my hallway from Goodwill, with the fabric I’m recovering them in laying across them.

      I need some motivation, people.

        Get to those chairs! Want help?

  2. Wow, that’s a great color combo!!!

    My Goodwill chair is currently sitting in my garage waiting for inspiration.

    Keep those awesome ideas coming in!

    Thanks for sharing.
