Before + After: French Flair Chairs


Last week, Becky Klaas showed us how she transformed her run down wardrobe into a fresh, romantic piece of furniture. And this week Becky is back with another furniture makeover. This time, she’s re-doing some outdated dining room chairs. I’ll let her take it away…

The following is a guest post by Becky Klaas of B-Real”¦Happy.

I love dumpster diving! These two chairs were one of my greatest finds last year. I found these beauties sitting outside a dumpster, and thought they would work great in my dining room.

A little stain, white paint, pink trim and a 1950’s table cloth I found at a local antique store made these chairs very girly and very sweet.

I love their french flair……ow la la.

Yeah, I love it too. Actually, I think the trim is the best part Crystal. It’s all about those tiny details. Isn’t it?

I love that. I wish there was a video on how to do this. This is one project I would LOVE to do.

That is a good idea Stefanie. Video tutorials are kind of tough though (I would imagine).

I don’t know if they are hard as they can take a little bit of time (however long it takes record you doing the project). I would be cool.

Love it – but it looks hard. Is the trim glued?
