Bar chairs weekend makeover!

 This weekend I made a fun little project for myself out of redoing these chairs.

I purchased these chairs on Thursday night, at a local new Goodwill grand opening, I paid 14.99 per chair.

 I first primed and painted  the chairs white.

After the paint dried I distressed the details with a product called rub n' buff, in a blue green color.

The cushion is actually covered twice. I first covered it with white fabric (just a white sheet). Then I went over the white with this blue lace.

I then added on this little ruffle I made with the ruffle attachment on my sewing machine.

I love that these chairs are even so cute from the back . They look great no matter what angle you look at them from.

Currently I am on the hunt at thrift stores and on craigslist to find a small pub table to go with these chairs

This weekend I also painted and distressed this mirror, I recently purchased at goodwill. I am Still debating on the perfect place to hang it, most likely the mirror wall I'm planning on doing.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
