Sara of Major Hoff Takes a Wife was smitten the moment she saw Ballard’s Casa Florentina Collection.
She says, “The brush strokes, the depth of colors, the glazing, oh my! Then I saw the price! Double oh my!!!!”
While Sara might not be able to have the exact $449 armchair she was drooling over, that didn’t mean she couldn’t have a chair with a similar look.
She snatched up a wood chair a friend was selling for $20.
It was desperately in need of a little TLC, and Sara was happy to oblige with a fresh coat of paint, secret waxing technique, and new upholstery.
Isn’t she a beaut now?
Sara was inspired by the Genoa Armchair with Linen Seat from Ballard Designs.

Thanks so much for the feature! I really appreciate it! And the best part--my 13 year old approves of the chair enough to do his homework there now! Yay!
