Introducing the week of chairs!

Jun 14th, 2010

I thought it would be fun to show you a bunch of ideas of how to refinish dining room chairs! For most readers I think it helps to actually “see” what a project will turn out like. So, this week will focus on showing you a few different ideas of colors and fabric choices for dining room chairs.

DAY #1

Day 1 features a chair painted in Krylon Bauhaus Gold with a yellow fabric found at JoAnn’s Fabrics.

Isn’t the knobby legs on this chair just to die for!?!?! I absolutely loved it!


  1. Ohhh! Loving the chair theme. I love the knobby legs! Looks awesome!

  2. Beautiful! I'm working on a turquoise trash to treasure chair using your directions for painting and glazing. Also doing a distressed look on a yard sale chair for our entryway.

  3. I am getting really frustrated because I can't find pretty spray paint colors!! At Home Depot and Lowes they seem to lack pretty colors in satin! Do you have a good red you recommend and what sheen do you typically use? And do you ever use a can of paint? Sorry- I totally bombarded you with a lot of questions!!

  4. I love this one!! I am obsessed with chairs lately!! Check out my latest finds and transformations at

  5. Bauhaus Gold is my best friend. LOVE!

  6. Ahhh fabulous! Can't wait to follow more of these posts.

  7. YES, love the knobby legs! Ugh, where do you find all these great pieces?! I'm always checking out thrift stores, but I never seem to find the "treasure" items that have good architecture and design… so jealous! Looks seriously adorable. =) Great job!

  8. love that pretty chair! I would not mind bumping into it at night!

  9. Those legs are fun. Great work, as always, ladies.

  10. Love the chair! Ok, so you and Danielle have inspired me to glaze! So I just glazed a mirror and side table! I'm so in love with them! Thankyou so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge with the world! I don't know how to send you a picture via blog- but if you want to just click on my blog, I just posted it.

    and then my regular blog is and on there I just posted 2 chairs I recovered. Thanks for inspiring all of us! We love you!

    Color can make a huge different to your home decor. I am sure my wife will love these chairs & the gold color.
