Chair Revamp

So I found this drabular piece at the DI for $4.00.
This chair fell out of the Super UG tree.
I   get the shivers looking at it! 

Time for this chair to get a DRAB TO FAB makeover!
 First, I took the seat off.

Got out this spray paint!

 Sprayed the guts of this chair,  a lovely vivid bright cherry red.
 Next gave it a good clear coat to top it off.
(I always clear coat every project like this when I am done painting)

Then I reupholstered the chair with black pleather.
(brought back some flash backs of some bad fashion choices I made in high school)
I was hoping to find a zebra print pleather, but when you live in a small town,
fabric isn't easy to find.
So plain ole' black will have to do!


I stapled the pleather down really tight.
Then screwed it back on!

Still a little too plain.

So I took this vinyl decal....

And added it to the corner of the chair.

 That added just the right amount of Pizazz!

I can't wait to take her out on my next shoot.

A total DrabFabular makeover!
