Chairs are always a fun makeover to tackle because you can usually find them for pretty cheap. Or have an old one lying around your house! This one was no exception, costing a whopping $5.
Here’s the before…
It had two old, gross layers of fabric on it that I removed, and unfortunately the wood used for the seat had seen better days and needed to be replaced too.
That’s an easy fix! I just bought some particle board from Home Depot and traced the old shape onto the new wood.
I also bought some new foam and placed that over my new piece of wood. I covered the whole thing with some fun new fabric and used a staple gun to attach it.
For the frame of the chair I used some white spray paint…
And for the gold accents, I used Rub ‘N Buff which I’m OBSESSED with. It’s amazing. And that’s it!
Now you don’t have to be scared to make over that old chair you’ve had for years! I promise it’s really not that hardAdd to favorites

So love to freshhen up tired furniture. This chair looks so great! I have not used rub and buff. Can you share a little more about it and maybe what it looks like? Thanks
Hi Mary! Thank you so much. Rub n Buff is amazing! It’s kind of like a thick paint that you can use to give pretty much anything an antiqued look. It comes in different shades and you can get it at most craft stores! Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/AMACO-Metallic-Finish-Antique-0-5-Fluid/dp/B00081HYDM
Wow that looks amazing I especially love the gold accents on the chair … I used that same paint and primer in coppery gold color to redo an old wooden desk last spring and I was amazed at easily and smooth it was to apply.
Thanks for the tips and inspiration
Thank you Samantha! It’s a great paint to use, and is one of my go tos for spray paint!
This chair looks a million times better than it did when you started!!! Thanks for the step-by-step how-to Bre, you’ve inspired me to do something DIY this weekend!!
Thank you so much Sara!
