Sunroom Chair Makeover

I have always liked those cane rounded back chairs (not sure what they are called).  When I found one at Goodwill for $6.99 I decided it was time for a makeover.
This is what it looked like when I got it at Goodwill.

This is what it looks like now. I got the fabric at JoAnn's and I like so much I would like to use it again on something.  Though I should be used to it by now I am always pleasantly surprised how much a little white paint brightens a piece of furniture.

I made this pillow and had a little pin I stuck on it to glam it up a bit.

The room it is in I call the sunroom because it has a skylight.  I love this room--it is where my computer and all my crafting supplies are.
I see these chairs at Goodwill all the time and I always think I want to get another one--even though I really have no where to put it.  Janae and I someday want to start selling our makeover projects at Flea Markets. We would have so much fun!

Welcome to blogland!

I just came by via your daughter's blog.

I LOVE the fabric you chose for this chair redo, and the pillow is so cute with that ruffle and pin.

I have a party for newbies... Wednesday's Bunny Hop. I would love it if you would share this chair makeover! The linky opens at 4:00 (Pacific time) Tuesday afternoon. It is a great way to meet other new bloggers. (The early links get the most views)

Very cute chair- I'm painting a couple of basic chairs white today too- freshen them up a bit.
