Burlap & Stencil Chair




Whenever I see a sad, ugly chair at a garage sale or thrift store, I scoop it up. I love a good underdog story and I'm determined with a little TLC to make these chair shine!

This chair had great bones, but just needed a fresh coat of paint and a serious fabric upgrade. It's not heinous, but it kind of screams Grandma's House.



I pulled off the old fabric and covered the chair with burlap. Then I made a stencil and added  one of my favorite numbers. Very simple and I loved how it turned out.

This is so great! I LOVE the stencil!

Okay, have we already had the conversation about how I have that same fabric that I will be making curtains from for my bedroom?

If so, sorry.

If not, I do. : )

I so wish I had your talent.

Your chair is so pretty now! I love rescuing old chairs, too. Those kind are my favorite, because the seats are so easy to redo and the fabric you choose always has such a great impact on the finished product. That one has really nice lines, and I love the carvings.

I have a sewing rocker in this same style but with even sadder (uglier) looking velour fabric. I really need to do something like this with it. This is MUCH prettier!

Love your chair, and love the stencil on it. Love anything burlap and double delight when it is stenciled with a number. Thanks for sharing at Sunday's Best.
