From Blah to Shabby Chic

Good afternoon, everyone in blog land.  It's Wednesday and I have another fun project to share with you.  This little chair has made me smile(when she was all remade) with all the gloomy weather we have had this week.  We have had really windy weather and rain and cold!!!!!!  Anyways, on to the project.  My husband found this chair at a garage sale for $2.00.  I thought it was cute but the seat had a tear in the vinyl.  So here is the before picture:
So, my husband took the back and the seat off because I said I would put some new vinyl on the chair.  Once the back and the seat was off, I decided to spray the frame with a berry spray paint.  It took a couple of spraying to get it to look nice.  I than covered the seat and back with an oil cloth that I purchased from a store called Elm Creek, up in Farwell, Michigan.  I just love the print.
I think the pink on the chair legs and back match the pink in the flowers quite nicely.  The print is retro looking and fresh at the same time.

So here is the finished result. What do you think?  From blah to Shabby Chic?

Until next time, Dianne.....
