Shabby Chic Chair

This was a week of finishing up projects ... the last step in the assembly line. I showed some photos a few weeks ago of pieces I was working on. The chair above was brown with a very ugly seat. It got a whole new look with paint & fabric.

I just love this piece. If I had room for it in my house, I would keep it! It is a very unusual server with the top attached shelf and drop leaves. The huge drawer is great storage. I painted and distressed it for that great shabby chic look. It will be listed on my site but as pick up only or blanket shipped.


I showed this chair a few weeks ago too. It actually started out wood color. I cleaned it up, pulled off the old trim and primed it.

I then painted and distressed it and tacked on the new fabric.



It was finished off with a pretty pink trim to hide the edges and add a lovely detail.




Thanks for visiting ...
