Before & After: Colorful Outdoor Chair Makeover

Jackpot! Stumbling upon a piece of fix-it furniture that has potential is one of the best feelings. Your creative energy starts pumping and you can't stop thinking about how amazing it'll look after you work your magic…

That's how Marie, from Whole Lotta Lovely felt when she and her husband stumbled upon two broken down outdoor chairs. Her husband begrudgingly put them in the car and they headed home while she thought of all the different possibilities to give new life to these run down chairs.

First, Marie decided on paint colors and got to work right away. Bright pink and yellow are obviously great choices for outdoor furniture and it certainly wouldn't be very difficult to find fabric to match. She stayed true to the style of the chair and went for a simple yet colorful striped fabric. If you put the before and after next to each other you'd have no idea it was the same chair!
