Before and After: An Antique Chair, From Eek to Chic!


If you caught my recent Before and After, you know that interior designer Eddie Ross is a wizard when it comes to makeovers. It's kind of like Cher in Clueless: "Her main thrill in life is a makeover, it gives her a sense of control in a world full of chaos." So, it should come as no surprise that Ross was able to transform this dated antique chair with hideous fabric into something completely à la mode. He sanded the frame and painted it white. As for the fabric, he wanted "a thick, horizontal stripe that felt casual and slightly askew," but couldn't find one, so he decided to DIY it. To hear how he created his ideal stripes and see the finished product, read more.


Ross made the stripes by taping off canvas fabric and spraying it with silver paint. Isn't it fabulous!? Check out his blog to hear more about the project.
