$2 Restore Chair

Thanks for Sharing!

I’ve got a great little chair makeover to share with you guys.  I picked up a sad, worn chair at the Habitat for Humanity Restore.  My youngest had outgrown her two little chairs, so when I came across a chair at the Restore for only $2  I scooped it up.

If you’ve been around my blog for a while you know I adore paint.  Add some fun fabric to the mix and you’ve got magic.

So sad! Like I said… nothing some paint and fabric can’t fix!

Here’s what I used: (affiliate links included for your convenience)


The base of the chair was spray-painted with Valspar’s Brilliant Silver. It’s a great shiny silver metal spray paint color!

The cane backing was spray painted with Krylon’s Blue Ocean Breeze.  Such a beautiful light teal blue.

and I found this adorably cute fabric at Walmart… score!  It’s a brushed cotton, so super soft and cozy.  Her sister is going to make her a couple of throw pillows with the leftover fabric.

It’s vibrant and colorful…. just like her personality.

Power of Paint and Fabric


  1. Was curious how you did this. Did you unscrew everything so it was all unattached, then went about painting and reupholstering?

  2. Holy moly…I see these chairs all the time @ Salvation Army. I never gave it a thought to paint the top. GREAT idea. Your choices of color and fabric are right on too! I struggle w/ that. Great job Maryann!

  3. Maryann, this chair looks gorgeous! I love the colors and no one would EVER believe this was a $2.00 chair! You did an amazing job and it’s fabulous! Thanks for sharing and pinning – have a happy Monday!
