52 Re-Deux – Week 32 – Goodwill Treasures

August 10, 2011


As you saw in the post last week, I got a pair of great mid century modern chairs (that were SUPER cheap!) from Goodwill. I’m not going to lie, they smelled a little bit (as Murphy demonstrates in the picture). And they smelled a lot when I pulled the fabric off of the seats and found disintegrating upholstery foam lying beneath the wooly fabric. Ah the beauty of re-deuxing someone else’s furniture! The chairs were so drab, they needed some color. I painted the frames a dark red, recut some new upholstery foam, and upholstered them with a cheery floral pattern.  

Without further ado, here they are!

    Beautiful – Nobody likes a stinky chair… except for doggies, obviously. 😉
