{3 drool-worthy chair makeovers}

Happy Wednesday all! Hope your week is well. For those of you looking for my weekly summary of Sarah's House 4, I promise I will have a post summing up the girls bedroom & craft room later today! This morning I wanted to share 3 amazing chair transformations I recently happened upon. Who doesn't love a gorgeous, deeply satisfying before & after?

First up, last week I nearly fell off my sofa when I laid eyes on Catherine's chair makeover over at The Golden Touch. She hunted down these chairs for an online client and had them reupholstered in two shades of purple Designer's Guild fabrics with contrasting piping {my favorite!!}:


Catherine has amazing vision, how lovely do these chairs look now:



To see more of these chairs and get the sources, visit Catherine's blog here.

Second up, Sarah of The Savvy Stylist Daily took a $20 Craigslist find and turned it into a black & white beauty. Love the striped fabric on the back and the contrasting piping:



And 3rd, you probably have come across this piece before ... a lovely transformation by Susie over at Mend using Cole & Son's 'Woods' fabric {you've seen the wallpaper right?}. It's dramatic and fabulous:



Ok, I know I said 3 transformations, but can I fit in one more before & after? This one is not decor related, but I nearly died it was so cute. And it made me miss my Pom so much, it's been 3 weeks yesterday and it's still feeling so empty with no puppy around here! So instead I spend a lot of time looking at pics of puppies - enjoy :)

Holy ZOINKS!!!! Amazing chairs. I'm not usually one for purple but that is pretty fantastic. The second black and white number is my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

OMG that puppy pic was so freaking cute! I have a picture of one of my dogs like that. I love chair makeovers, can't get enough of them!

Working on chair frame #3. Had picked out a red and white oriental print, now, may have to rethink the fabric choice!

Those chairs are gorgeous! But the puppy transformation is the best! I feel your pain. I love looking at puppy pics since our loss too. xo

Oh, wow! The colors of the first chair are amazing, and I can't get enough black and white.

Sheila @SZInteriors said...

Oh, Wow! Oh, My! Those are the words that popped into my head first! The chair transformations are stunning - I think my favorite is chair #2. Love that one completely!

But your last transformation is the best by far. Way too cute!

Hahah! Those poor puppies! Definitely NOT the best before & after transformation ;-)

The chairs, on the other hand, are FAB! May I just gush for a moment over the purple one? Awesomeness! The other two are pretty awesome as well - love the Wood fabric.

Squirt & Jackson send you lots of puppy kisses :-)

Carissa @ the Fabulous Design File said...

That black & white striped chair is amazing. All 3 are great transformations!

Pinecone Camp said...

Fantastic chair re-do's, but the sweet pooches have totally made my day!

Meesh@idreamofchairs.com said...

Drool worthy is right! Now I need a mop! Haha! Love the boldness of the purple, the sophistication of the stripes, the uniqueness of the trees and the cuteness of the pups!
