What would you do with this:-chair.jpg

And don't say toss it

I want to know what kind of fabric you would use to reupholster it, would you paint the wood, stain the wood, leave the wood? What would you do with it? I need ideas! This chair is going to go in my living room to replace the bulky sofa chair. My living room is a mushroom beige color and my accents are a soft green.

Looks like a find to me. The wood is so nicked up though so painting makes sense. Bring out the detail in the front and arms with a contrasting color. Use a glaze over the paint to make it "antiqued". Are the bottom cushion and back cushions separate from the chair? If so, I might be temped to keep the green velveteen bottom and cover the cushions with a contrasting material--something bold like this. You could make the piping from the old cushion material.

I absolutely LOVE that chair.

If you toss it, I am coming to get it......lol

I would defintely paint it. Don't forget to prime before painting. Sand first.

I have given so many chairs in my home a new look.
The bones of that chair are old world, so to contrast, if you like, I would give it a funky fabric, and what an impact it will make. Show stopper for sure.

I got the chairs today! Finally! I got both of them and they are way too amazing, much better in person than in that photo!! They are actually almost round! I'm going to look at fabrics this afternoon, I've already started sanding, the previous owner practically BEGGED me not to, but I have to... I can't wait for my husband to come home and see them! And for him to help me decide where the second one is going lol! $40 well spent thus far.

I wouldn't paint them until you stripped them to see what you have. If you can, they will be much nicer stained and varnished again.
