Another Painted Fabric Chair!

 I am so excited

 to share with you

 another one of my

 half painted fabric

 and half upholstered chair!

I bought this chair from a good friend of mine. She had painted the wood and caning white, but I repainted it to be less distressed than what she had. This is what it looked like at that point...

I used it in my Green Toile guest bedroom because the green matched the toile exactly...
However, I have changed this room with new fabric curtains, dust ruffle and accent pillows and used a different chair from another room and turned this room into what I call my MacKenzie Childs Inspired guest bedroom that you can see HERE.
I really loved the look of this chair but was not needing a green chair. I also didn't want to reupholster the tufting on the back. Could I? Yes! Did I? No!

Instead, I painted the tufted back just like I did with this chair HERE. It was a very popular post.
This chair is not too far off what I had done before. I found some fabric at Hobby Lobby that looks like black French writing on a creamy colored background. I fell in love. But it's not upholstery weight.

 I went ahead and used this fabric knowing that it was going to be a rarely used chair in our master bedroom. I also wanted to give this chair more detail than what it had. Originally the seat was just pulled fabric. I chose to give it piping and look more like a true upholstered chair.

I made some piping out of left-over mini black and white check that I am so fond of. I also made a double welt piping for the chair back.
The back of this chair has an inset of the same green fabric. To get to this, I would have had to pull off the tufted front. Since I wasn't going to upholster the front, I chose to use spray adhesive and just glue the fabric to the back. I then used my double welted piping to frame it in. Worked like a charm.
I am very pleased with how different this chair looks in its new transformation...
And especially how it goes so well in our master bedroom since I had stole a chair for another room.

  1. What a great job you did on the chair - it really looks good and I love the fabric. Your guest bedroom also looks good. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely post.

  2. Oh I love the chair, it is fabulous. I love the check piping too, so pretty.

  3. Wow! I am really impressed with your chair recovering project. It looks simply stunning. You have quite talent there!! :)

  4. Your chair is gorgeous. It really wasn't in super rough shape before, but you made it fantastic!! I would love it if you linked this up to my Motivate Me Monday linky party at IT'S A ginger SNAP.

  5. I have a chair very similar to this one Terry that I have been planning on painting. But, I think I like the mix of the paint and upholstery... beautiful.....Cathy

  6. I love how it turned out and it looks great in your Master bedroom. You are talented!

  7. Your bedroom is so beautiful and the chair makeover is amazing. Love the details.

  8. LUV IT!
    And -btw- if I didn't already say, what a great guest room!

  9. What a great transformation! I've been wanting to paint some upholstery for a while now, you've given me the motivation I need! Love the French script fabric and the piping. Also love your master!

  10. I keep reading your post on painting upholstery and wanting too try it. This chair is especially pretty.

  11. Great makeover. I love the scripted fabric you chose.

  12. Gorgeous! What a creative transformation; love the black and white patterns, especially the checkered piping!

    Visiting via Show & Tell,


  13. You did a beautiful job with this...a very custom chair!

  14. What a fantastic idea. I have a chair I want to recover or paint but I was thinking it was an all or nothing type of project it never occurred to me to paint half. I also like your contrasting piping and I may do my chair like this. Thanks for sharing,

  15. WOW, are you ever talented! I love your decor, it's amazing! Wish I had that vision :) -Bev

  16. Wow, you did a beautiful transformation on this chair! Thanks for sharing at The Makers!

  17. Lovely job! That script-print fabric is amazing! I might try and use something similar on two chairs that are currently in my garage awaiting some attention! I am also completely in love with that rug in your master bedroom - where did you get it?

  18. Visiting from Refresh Style.... I have the same french style fabric on a chest I upholstered at the foot of my bed (my "postage stamp" is blue, however). I love your chair and would love to paint 2 chairs I have in my family room. I spent the better part of yesterday researching painting upholstery, and the last blog I read (after about 50!) said she would not do this technique on a "TV watching chair"- she had done it with an occasional chair that was not used often. We use ours every day and I wonder how comfortable it would be? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

  19. Terry I love the fabric and the co-ordinating black & white check fabric for the piping - such a pretty chair makeover!

  20. Such a beautiful chair makeover!! Would love it if you shared this at our Motivational Monday party at Burlap and Babies.


  21. I like the addition of the mini-print as the piping. Great job.

  22. As always...awesome job! I will be featuring this tonight at my Sizzle into Summer party that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks. http://diybydesign.blogspot.com

  23. You're seriously playing musical chairs! Love this redo, and your piping. Thanks for sharing this post with Revisionary Life Thrifty Life Thursday Linky Party. :) You're going to be featured this week!

  24. What a great makeover, Terry! I love how this chair turned out. That printed fabric is beautiful and I love the piping you added.

  25. Wow! I love, love, LOVE this chair! Thank you so much for sharing. I am pinning or future inspiration!

  26. Great transformation Terry and I love the fabric you chose. I'm delighted to be featuring your chair at tomorrow's Shabbilicious Friday party.

  27. Terry, I love the print you ised on that! Fantastic job! Thank you for linking with Home Sweet Home!

  28. Love both pieces! Could u share what paint color this is? I have a buffet I want to re-do and this would b perfect! Thanks!


It makes me smile to hear from you!
