Chasing Davies: First Thrift Store Restoration Project

First Thrift Store Restoration Project

For years I've been wanting to get into thrifting, and I've started slowly.  My first big success was creating the desk chair for my guest bedroom that I had been looking all over for.  I wanted a bright turquoise chair for my navy guest bedroom and couldn't find one anywhere...

Enter a hideous thrift store find:

$12.99 from the Salvation Army in Mission, KS

+ 1 yard of striped outdoor fabric (more durable) stapled to the seat (after removing the old icky fabric)

The final product?  A chair I had wanted for less than $50:

The guest room is really coming along, and  turning into a place I love to be!  It's come a long way... don't you agree?


And now:

Have you done any projects on the cheap lately?? Do share!  Provide the link int he comments.
