Before & After: Vintage Chair Makeover

Make Mine Eclectic

When a friend gave Jessica this vintage chair last year, she knew it had great potential. Flash forward twelve months, and inspiration finally struck for how to makeover this piece so it would work in her home. Some paint and a little DIY reupholstery later, and this chair now takes pride of place in Jessica's dining room.

The freshly painted chair sits at the head of the dining table, and blends well with the existing black dining room chairs and shelves. The new leather seat has an interesting texture, but it is the hot pink piping at the base that gives this chair its extra oomph. This chair has lovely lines and the cane back looks to be in excellent condition- two elements that made this piece a great choice for a makeover.
