Shabby Chic Roadside Rescue Chair

Kat from Basil and Chaise shares the steps to achieving that shabby chic look yourself without spending big bucks. Kat was fortunate to find a set of solid wood ladder back chairs on the side of the road that were tired and in need of a makeover. She decided to give one of her new chairs a heavily distressed look with white paint, a paint scraper, and sandpaper. Fresh fabric finished off the chair and gave it a second chance to shine!

Kat was inspired by the Stanley Furniture Classic Old World Dining Wood Side Chair available from Hayneedle.
