Reveal: Thrift Store Chair

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm posting from California this week, so posts are coming a litte later than usual. If you all remember from last week, I briefly talked about a few pieces I found while thrifting in North Carolina, namely this amazing chair I got for $6!
Well, of course I changed it. The fabric was in great condition and having reupholstered an arm chair before and knowing the amount of work it takes, I was happy to leave this one in its current skin. I decided to dip-dye the legs with a cool aqua to bring some much needed color into the drab chair. This helped a lot.

But it still needed some work. Last week I picked up some nailhead trim for another project (which you'll see later in the week) and decided to add some to the arms of this little chair as well. A faux sheepskin and a cute pillow later, I have a gorgeous addition to my living room that set me back a total of $9. Can't beat that!

Thanks for reading, Please let me know what you think of this thrift store redo in the comments section below. I hope you guys have a great week!
