Before & After: Refinished Accent Chair

So I found this ugly ol' chair at a yard had potential.  I ripped up the seat and found 2 layers of fabric and some of that plant basket lining stuff...yuck, old.  So I bought a brand new fluffy 2" foam cushion, some batting, and brand new awesome fabric.  I sanded the wood and painted a cream, leaving some of the creases and crevices alone to bring in more of a shabby look. 

I put it on my Facebook page ( ) and within 5 minutes (literally) it had several responses and within 45 minutes or so it had sold.  Guess I need to scout out more chairs like this. :)

Here it is before:

And here it is after:

Please consider following my blog as I'm always posting about our home improvements (big and small), projects, savings tips, animals, and coming soon...dancing. :)  Yeah, the animals and dancing don't have much to do with home improvements, but whatever.
