Modern Granny

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Another chair makeover!  Here's the before. I picked up this armchair a few weeks ago. The ultra-traditional chair had a few things going for it - it was structurally sound and had classic lines.  I was not thrilled with the upholstery it was wearing - the texture reminded me of car upholstery.  And it's original orange-brown stain was pretty scuffed up.  

Paint (after sanding and priming) to the rescue!  High gloss white always looks so fresh, and I knew it would be the perfect choice for the fabric I was planning to use.  I got a yard of Scalamandre's China Rose from Shannon over at The Designers Attic.  

I love the old-fashioned feel of this pattern.  Big cabbage roses, Chinoiserie, and gorgeous color!  How can you go wrong?

Aren't you amazed at how paint and fabric can transform a piece that is past its prime into something so relevant to today's interiors? This Granny is hip!  

This lovely chair is going to the shop. AND I have enough of this fabric left over to  redo another armchair that will live in my foyer. 

Happy Monday!
