Apartment Therapy reader and designer Christine Schwalm sent in this Before & After. Christine found the chair on the side of the curb and knew she could do something with it. She snapped it up, took it home, and waited until inspiration struck.

Rather than just slap a coat of white paint on the chair, (Don't get us wrong. We love some white paint, but this is a nice change.) Christine used a dark stain. Christine used fabric and a new cushion that she already had on hand. The whole project ended up costing only $5!

Thanks Christine!
