Nicole Gibbons is the talented blogger behind the packed-full-of-good-ideas site So Haute. We asked her to send us some of her favorite before & after projects to share with you during Home Projects month, so, without further ado - a total transformation of an eBay find, courtesy of Nicole:
Nicole tells us: I got this chair on eBay and its original condition was pretty worn and tattered. I stripped the bright gold color off and re-painted the frame a softer gold with a slight pink tint then had the guts of the chair replaced and reupholstered in a pink metallic Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa fabric. The transformation was drastic!
