This little chair…

This post begins with this little chair…


In desperate need of a facelift and update! The chair is solid wood and sturdy…but the primary colored jungle print has got to go!

This little chair has a nice history…it was given to us by a friend to be used at our lake house guest room. This little chair lived in her daughters bedroom, next to her daughters desk, for many years. When they moved and bought new furniture, they generously gave the entire set to us…chair, desk, and bunk beds. We happily accepted as we were furnishing our cabin at the time, and were more than willing to take all “donations” from friends.

Now it is time to spruce up this little chair, and eventually the entire bedroom set.
Step one – choose a fabric to re-cover the seat…

I chose this Richloom Fabric – Celina Opal – that I found at a local discount fabric warehouse. It is also currently available at Fabric.com found here. I love all of the bright colors and floral pattern on the white background.

Next step – choose a color to paint the chair…


I began by pulling out my Sherwin Williams fan deck and browsed through the blues and greens to find the right shade. I am using this greenish blue color as an accent all around the cabin so pulled it first - SW 6487 Cloudburst
However, I  like the brighter yellowish green in the fabric too! I found an almost perfect match with - SW 6711 Parakeet


I suppose I could always just go with white, but why not give this little chair a really fun new look, that will give the room a big pop of color and the style?!


I promise to choose the paint color this week, and start painting this weekend!

What color do you like best?
Do you think I should go Blue, Green, or White?
