Revive/Renew: A Vintage Chair Redo

I love giving vintage/thrift items a new life. And, yes, I tend to anthropomorphize objects.

*BOOM! Look at that big word that just made my student loan debt is totally worth it!*

My latest project was a chair that I actually bought a few years back but finally found the right inspiration to revamp.

When I first saw it, I loved it’s shape and unique design but the original paint job left much to be desired and the cushion was “well loved”.

Now, with a new paint job and a refinished cushion, it looks completely different. The pièce de résistance (I just made you bilingual…you can thank me later) was using a genuine burlap coffee sack (you can still smell the beans!!) to re-cover the cushion. This was found at Ecoworks in New Haven; an organization geared to provide discarded materials to local crafters, teachers, and artists at low cost for upcycling.

Now the chair sits pleasantly in my living room and both it, and I, couldn’t be happier!
So what are you going to upcycle today?
