Armchair 30 minute makeover





Materials: very old IKEA chairs, nonage on them, spray paint and 8 covered buttons

Description: Found these chairs at my local thrift shop.

Removed the pine colored legs and spray painted them Oil-rubbed bronze.

Covered 8 buttons with a sunburst material.

Drilled holes through the back.

Sewed on the covered buttons to make it a tufted back.

All in under 30 minutes!

    I just picked up one of these chairs at Goodwill. I have removed the cover and am planning to dye it, but I never thought to paint the legs. The oil-rubbed bronze color looks fantastic. Thanks for the ideas.
