furniture makeover

last week, i did a few furniture makeovers for a client (one was the mirror i already showed here), and i wanted to share a few more with you.

walt found these wonderful wooden chairs at a yard sale, and envisioned them painted a glossy black with new upholstery.

the cute little 2-tier table was another yard sale find that i transformed as well...

(he'll be hanging all of that artwork up behind them...cute, huh??)

don't you love the new combo? so chic, but done in a thrifty way. he found the fabric at forsyth fabrics, here in atlanta.

and here is the little table - newly painted a glossy burnt orange. it was raining, so my photos are kind of dark and hard to see, but hopefully you can kind of see how i did the little metal feet in a high-gloss black as well. this was walt's (client) idea, and i thought it was great. those little feet that are on antique furniture deserve to stand out.

  7. LifeBegins@Thirty- not sure! i know he had them reupholstered....i'm sure it's foam.

  9. The chairs look like a million (and a half) bucks. I am not a yard sale person but when I was driving in my neighborhood and saw the chairs ... I had to have them. Kristen did an amazing job on the chairs and the table. The table was a $5.00 find. Kristen made my vision, for both pieces, come true. Very chic and modern, thanks to Kristen.
    FYI...the cushions are foam but have springs in them.
