Wingback Chair Makeover

chair makeoverThis chair in my living room used to belong to Dave’s grandpa. We received the gift and always planned on having it reupholstered since it was several years old. But on the way to our house, this cool old chair literally fell off the truck and giving it a makeover became an even bigger priority. 

before and after chairI mean, yowza, poor chair!

Luckily I’d already found a photo inspiration (from 4 Men 1 Lady) for what I wanted to turn the chair into, check it out below.

I had the chair reupholstered in white (pretty dang daring when you have 3 kids!) and then did my own version of the whole drape the blanket under the cushion thing.

I just love it when style is affordable, don’t you?

Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
