Luann spent just $40 on this thrift store chair and a great deal on discounted fabric to boot, but you’d never know it. Check out the expensive-looking (and, dare we say, nature-inspired) final results.

From Luann:

The finish was worn down on the arms and gunked up with…gunk? I sanded the wood completely down and stained and polyed it. I got a good deal from a fabric outlet on this fabric which is, in my opinion, perfect for this MCM chair. It was barely enough and I had no extra for mistakes. As a DIYer, this would be risky, but worth a try and I pulled it off! Love this chair!

Thank you Luann!
