Green Italian Chair






I seem to have a green thing lately--not sure why, but I do love the color green so I am going with it!

   I found this grungy chair with great bones at a garage sale awhile back and when I looked closely, it was stamped on the bottom-From Italy.  The wood was in a faded condition, but the chair was sturdy and well made so I bought it.  
Before:





I decided to go with a bolder print on this chair so I pulled out a green and white fabric and used it on the chair.  I aged the frame and legs with home made chalk paint and dark wax.  






My sun room is done in green, white and black and I took this sign off the wall for the picture.  I might have to keep the chair in my sun room too! 












Lovely curved legs


Love the details!

    1. Thank you Marigene-it's on my list of maybe I will keep. I have a French pine bench that I would have to get rid of or move so the green chair could stay. It might happen.

  10. Love it, Darrielle. I just picked up a similar chair yesterday. I think I am going to paint the fabric again. I realized it is silly for me to reupholster anything in my house... it will looks good for about an hour then I will see little paw prints and hand prints all over.

  20. Fabulous reupholstering job! Love the paint finish, fabric selection and love how you paid attention to the pattern and centered it so perfectly on the back and seat! Very professional! Maybe a tutorial one of these days? :)
