Bamboo Chair

I bought this chair and ottoman for $30 on Craig's List using my iPhone App. Craigs Pro.
It's going in my daughter Cami's room.  Cami's room is going through a huge makeover.  I already bought a dresser on Craig's List and painted it.  This is the second project on my to-do list for the makeover.

Cami wasn't too enthusiastic when I brought this home for her.   My husband asked, "why is that disgusting thing in our house?"  Casey said, "it's ugly but I know you will make it look good mom."

It just needs some TLC.

and a little imagination.

I started by recovering the chair and ottoman cushion with some left over fabric I had from a Halloween costume project.  I think I picked up the fabric for around $3 on a remnant table.  I only used a really small piece of it to make a witch costume for Cami a few years back.  It's part of the heart detail.

Bye Bye 80's fabric.

How did we survive before there were staple guns?

Still not there yet but I like the progress.

Time for a good cleaning with some warm soapy water and an old tooth brush.

I let it completely dry out in the sun and then I spray painted it white.

Hey Cami, can I find a different chair for you? 
I think I like this in my family room? 

She said "No Way," she LIKES it now!

Here it is in her freshly painted room. 
I painted it Benjamin Moore Poolside Blue, Cami's pick.
 She has some very strong opinions about what she likes.

The little ottoman has a circle detail that will be repeated in the space. 

The carpet is the next to go. 

Roscoe gives it the bark of approval too.

Thanks for checking it out!


  1. I just love the bones of that chair and ottoman but what you did to it look amazing!!! love it

  2. Wow, it doesn't even look like the same chair! I love it! I love the bright orange fabric with the bright blue wall!!
    I would loooove to do the concrete countertops AND floor, but we're renting right now so I can't. Someday though I'll be doing it for sure; I love the look! Your floor is gorgeous!

  3. The end result is fabulous! I love the punch of color :)

  8. I LOVE orange! I eventually want to do my master bath in orange--but that will take a lot of twisting my hubby's arm. Great job on the makeover-- can't wait to see the rest of the room...

  9. Such a great makeover!!! The fabric looks incredible next to the wall paint. Great job!
