Old chair makeover {part 1}

I have owned this chair for a good 5 yrs or so now. I bought it at a local craft fair for 35$. I have LOVED it for such a long time, and still do. The only problem I had with it was the fabric. Not my favorite. I have painted so many things in my home this lovely krylon ocean breeze but I'm ready for a change. So I decided after much thought to paint this beauty.
 Going more with what I have in mind for our new home, I decided to Scandinavian it up a bit;) gustavian style if u will:) getting back to my roots I tell ya, lol! 

I used the same colorsas my tremour mirror revamp. only I omitted the dark glaze. I still Havnt found the right fabric for the seat yet, so I just used something to cover it up for now. Stay tuned for part 2 for that update. Forgive me with my lame cell pix, my Mac keyboard is MIA during the move and I am still trying to replace it so no nice NIkon pix for now. 
I still need to touch up the back rest a bit...

I love it!
Now, some advice please. I want to give my bar stools a makeover. 
I'm not a fan of the red undertones in the  wood. Never have been. These chairs where a storage unit find so...
They looked good in my old kitchen. But the plan is my new kitchen will be a creamy white.
 So I am thinking to paint them

 With a glaze maybe?? 

Or leave the wood and just paint the black? Oh and I will need to add a new seat cover. Help. I've been wreaking my brain trying to decide and ...well...I just can't! 


  1. I vote painting the chair mainly cream and doing the red part gray.

    1. Ohhh I like that idea!;) thanks Danica!
