Makeovers don’t have to be dramatic to be beautiful. I was in need of an extra chair at a second location on my office wall desk. As the area was small I didn’t want anything too big and bulky. I looked through what I had in storage and found this old brown folding chair. It was missing the bottom leg stoppers but other than being ugly was in decent shape. With a little paint and a touch of vinyl it matched my office perfectly. (For a similar idea check out our Chair With Flair!)
Chair Makeover Supplies
- Black spray paint
- Black chair tips
- Vinyl decor (I made mine using my Silhouette Portrait but you can easily buy something ready made!)
The only prep work I did was to wipe down the chair really well before painting.
Because my office colors were black, grey and hot pink I opted for a black gloss. I gave it two coats allowing it to dry well in between.
We purchased some inexpensive rubber chair tips in black and added those to the legs so my new wood floor would be protected.
I have a Silhouette Cameo cutting machine so I chose a flourish I liked and cut it out using hot pink vinyl. However, you can hit up any craft store and find ready made things to put on your chair!
This was the perfect touch.
