She Turned An Old, Ugly Chair Into A Beautiful Focal Point With Just Some Paint

Whenever I'm looking to buy new furniture, I immediately think of how I could improve it, if I were to take it home.

Generally the improvements involve sanding, staining, and above all — painting. But when it comes to ugly upholstery, I steer clear. I'm either going to have to pay someone to reupholster the chair or couch, or just live with it until I'm beyond annoyed with the pattern.

At least that's what I thought.

Then I saw what Andi of Delusions of Ingenuity did…

You see, she liked this chair she had in her home…but the fabric was WAY outdated.

Paint is officially my go-to craft supply for making anything old look brand-new.
