When I picked up this chair, I mainly did it because it had excellent lines, not because I liked the fabric. The 70s green was in excellant shape, however, so I hated to rip it apart.
That's when I read a posting on Primative & Proper about simple painting an upholstered piece using a special textile medium.
It transformed my dated avacodo into a white-washed beauty. The fabric becomes almost like a vinyl, which means easy clean-up, a nice feature with a Messy Marvin running around the house.
I've been wanting to use this technique again and was excited when I found some more "victims," some parson's chairs from Craigslist.
I'm sure my husband wishes food prep would take place on this counter, instead of chair transformations.
Don't worry, Honey, I'll cook again...I promise.
