Before & After: A Beautiful Bergere Makeover

Before & After: A Beautiful Bergere Makeover

Perfect timing for project month! We were happy when an email from Maja, a regular Apartment Therapy reader, hit the inbox. She sent us in these before and after photos of an eBay chair makeover project — from a traditional floral to a bright and bold modern graphic pattern, we love the transformation…

...and the After!

Maja writes: I'm moving to a new apartment in a couple of weeks and have been buying some furniture. I found the perfect Louis Bergere chairs and an ottoman on eBay - I have been wanting chairs like this for a long time! But I hated the fabric and wood color. I decided to paint them black and found the perfect fabric from Trina Turk for F. Schumacher online.

Molly from Chairloom has been awesome and reupholstered them for me and they look amazing. She is really professional and her prices are extremely reasonable. Since I'm an Apartment Therapy addict, I thought maybe other readers would be interested in seeing the cool transformation.

Thanks Maja!
