Quick Chair Redo

So, I found this chair at Target on clearence for $8….marked down from $40. $40!! It doesn’t exactly match what we got going on ’round here, but for eight bucks I figured I’d take it home and make it a front porch chair.
Of course, I couldn’t leave it as is though – its light wood and chrome and way too modern. While I can’t chage the modern part, I can certainy change the rest! I picked one of my rejected paint samples from the kitchen cabinets and got to work. I removed the legs and spray painted them pewter, a couple of coats of paint, a coat of poly, and viola!
I made a pillow to go on it – to match some of the cusions I’m planning to make for our other “outdoor” furniture.
And no, I’m not going to show you a picture of it all perfect and matchy on my front porch – it’s currently a mess. We don’t have a garage or basement or anything of that nature, so our front porch is where all the magic happens. As in its usually covered in tools, halfway finished projects, the husbands motorcycle, toddler toys….   Yes, we’re THAT house.  Just be glad we’re not your neighbors ; )
