i LOVE the chair also- how creative! i could also see doing that with the front of a frame or a wooden storage box (wheels are turning). thanks for posting; i'll have to check out the newest bh&g issue.


Lets see, I'm about to redo a chair myself.

Chair: $10 (Goodwill)
Zebra Upholstery Fabric for seat: $10 (Hobby Lobby on sale)
Liquid sandpaper, chemical resistant gloves, Black paint and lacquer: $20 (Home Depot)

We'll see how it turns out! I'm hoping to phase out the wood in my living room and go with black so this is the start.

Live a Colorful Life

Hi! Love your blog. I found it this afternoon while googling the current issue of bhg 100 decorating ideas. I too LOVE that chair and it inspired me to transform a table--here's the link:


Could you tell me the fabric that was used on the window shade? It's listed as yours in the magazine. Thanks for your help!


I love, love that chair!


Can anyone tell me where the desk & hutch pictured above (page 70 of Spring 2009 issue) can be found? Thank You.
