White, Gold and Grey Chair Makeover

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 hard :)

    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
