I had a lone chair from a set that needed a home. It was from a 5 piece set I paid $65 for. I knew it would be perfect for a desk I had picked up that didn’t have a chair to go with it. I knew by painting a mismatched chair and desk black, it would be the perfect way to marry two lonely pieces of furniture. When I finished , it was like they were meant for each other.
Here is what the chair looked like before I painted it. It was a perfectly good wood chair that needed a new seat. It was easy to cut a piece of plywood as a base to the chair and then use this method to reupholster it before painting the wood.
I love buying loose chairs that’s not in a set with a table. I’ve been able to use them when I’ve needed a chair for the odd project like this small desk/vanity. I am sure you’ve seen these kind, they normally have a mirror attached. The stool that went with the desk was was broken so I thought they would make a great couple and could go off to my booth together.
I love how these turned out! I was supposed to take these to my booth to sell, but I decided to keep it for myself. Since it’s not a full size desk, it’s the perfect size for a little private writing corner in my living room. The kids can do home work or draw and not take up space at the kitchen table. Or maybe I will do all of my blogging there, or get my Etsy orders together… 😉
Someday something I paint will make it to the booth to sell.
