Trash-to-Treasure Chrome and Cowhide Chair

Heather of The Heathered Nest says it’s no secret that she has a soft spot for "hopeless cases.” Hopeless cases like a dirty, rusted metal-frame chair with ripped-up upholstery and rotten wood. Heather had found the chair curbside, and two years went by before the perfect inspiration came along for turning it from a hopeless case into a luscious chrome and cowhide chair. Heather shares how she removed all the rust and then got a bargain on an IKEA cowhide rug to recover it. You have to check out the before pic to truly appreciate the transformation!

IKEA Hack Cowhide Chair

Heather was inspired by cowhide chairs like the Maison Jansen Style Chrome and Cowhide Chair available through 1stdibs.
