Change The Style Of Old Chairs With A Playful Painted And Upholstered Style
When you are updating the look of old dining room chairs, you can add a whimsical feel by changing the way you apply the fabric to the chair seats. My friend Clyde, chose a fun pink and black color scheme for his hair salon and selected fabrics and accessories with tones of silver, white added to his pink and black overall look.
Change The Direction Of How You Apply Fabric To Chair Seats
I love the way Clyde applied similar fabric colors to his chairs but alternated the direction of the fabric on the chair seats. He also did a reverse of the paint colors on both chairs, yet the chairs do look like they are part of a set.
