Make-Over Old Chairs With Yellow Paint And Colorful Whimsical Fabric

Retro Inspired Whimsical Vintage Chairs For Your Breakfast Area

COLOR...that is what lots of old dark chairs need....a color make-over. And not just
W H I T E .....bright happy colors. All it takes is some whimsical visions..... And what about the upholstery? Can you picture in your mind a funky color and than letting yourself go with some great patterned CHEER (chair) covers.

These yellow chairs were spotted recently at The Farmington Antiques Weekend at the Farmington Polo Grounds , Farmington, CT. I bet they started off as dining room chairs.....and now they make a great look for your retro inspired breakfast area.

  1. I am completely in love with those chairs!!

  2. Ohhhhh! During my son's college days, I thrifted four unmatched wooden chairs, painted them all bright colors, recovered the seats with bright fabrics and topped the fabric seat with clear plastic for ease in cleaning. It was so liberating.....making fun and funky functional. :) BTW, I just discovered your blog and I am so thrilled about it! Yeah! Pam @ Sallygoodin
