Painted Fabric Chair

Amber from Queen of Chairs almost considered buying an Anthropologie chair instead of not paying her mortgage for the month. Almost. That was just for a split second before reality set in. Instead, Amber decided to  give a $5 chair from a barn sale an Anthro-inspired makeover, painting the fabric with chalk paint and applying a dark wax. Now she has an original handpainted chair but for $5 instead of $980!


Amber was inspired by the Olmo Chair from Anthropologie.

Her upcycled chair is much better than the inspiration chair! Way to go. Crazy to think of skipping a mortgage for a chair. I say keep on hitting the barn sales and dumpster diving for one of a kind treasures that are even better!

Wow! Her version is so much better than the Anthropologie chair. What an inspiration!

I agree she did a better job than the original...I am impressed, makes me want to do the same!
