Chair Makeover, turquoise & pink; pink desk;orange headboard bench

Pin It

My Son-in-law, Dan, gave me this chair, and I love it!  I could see it's potential immediately.


I stripped the worn old fabric off of it. (Sounds easy, but can be the worst part of the job)

I spray painted the wood in flat white.
I covered the seat and back in hot pink!
Then covered the seat cushion and back in a beautiful blue patterned satin fabric.  Although it doesn't show well there is quite a bit of pink in the blue fabric.

I bought this sofa table at a yard sale.

I spray painted it hot pink!

Then I covered it with brown stain,

and wiped most of it off.

Don't they look good together?

This is an old bed that I bought at a yard sale.

This isn't the best picture, but I stripped it, stained it, and varnished it.  I made it into this bench and then added a cushion covered with some fabric my friend Kris sent me from Thailand (thanks again Kris!).  I plan to do another bench or two soon, you know, when I have some spare time on my hands :)  I decided that our back deck needs a new bench, so I have a few ideas rattling around in my head.  I hope you enjoyed looking at these projects, I assure you that I enjoyed making them!

  4. Your blog came up in a search for hot pink furniture, and I found some great ideas! My husband isn't very keen on me taking in used furniture. I love what you did with the sofa table and chair. The bench is so very clever! Very inspiring ideas! Thanks for sharing them!

  5. I have that bed in my attic!!! It was my grandmothers but the frame broke. After I do the painted wood grain floors I am soooo doing this! And then start planing an island for the camp house. Geez I just need u to come to GA. thanks for all the great ideas!!!!
