Lovely Decor: Jazzy Yellow Chair

{before}

i'm always so inspired by design*sponge online. the website features such unique and affordable home decor ideas that really make you go 'wow, i can totally do that myself too!' my favorite posts are the ones where people take old or broken furniture and restore it or re-do it to give it their own personal flavor.
i've been wanting a cute computer chair for a while, so one weekend i felt so inspired that i actually went down to our local salvation army and picked up a wooden chair that i could makeover. my husband (and i...haha) sanded the old varnish off, then i painted a coat of primer, and a few coats of paint. without further ado, my new jazzy yellow computer chair!

  2. so awesome, and very jazzy! your chair looks brand new now! and such a fun color! =)

    so do you think you'll do this again? sounds like a lot of work! but i guess in the end, you are able to make it exactly how you want it to look. this is so inspiring!
