My five-minute, free chair makeover
Mr. Speedy and I are currently in the process of replacing our dining room table and restoring the balance in the room with a matching set of chairs, to be painted a glossy black.
We've had mismatched chairs since just before Christmas, when one of our slightly rickety set of four finally kicked the bucket. That, of course, leaves us with three stragglers that can be deployed throughout the house!
The first one to find a home ended up in front of my vanity. But, it was in serious need of a makeover.
Scouring my stack of remnants (with a little advice on my final decision from the Twitterverse), I grabbed a piece left over from my mantel art makeover.
After cutting it to size, and carefully folding and re-folding it to get the corners just so, a few hits with my staple gun and the chair was transformed (without costing me a penny).
And, here it is in front of my vanity! The mirror was a Craigslist find, and I have some under-counter lighting that still needs to be installed to finish off the look. All told, setting up my vanity will have cost less than $40! Now I've got a great place to stash away my jewellery and put on my makeup - plus something pretty to sit on!
Stay tuned for the rest of my master bedroom makeover (on a $200 budget).
