Chair Repair

I got around to spray painting my little chair (fabric update seen here) a few weeks ago, sorry I didn’t update you sooner. I decided to use Krylon’s Dover White and I’m really happy with how it turned out! The white is still nice and bright but has a little depth and turned out shiny and glossy. I really like the pop of white and the robin’s egg blue dotted fabric with the modern feel of the chair, it adds some softness to its harder modern lines.

Here’s a reminder of what the chair looked like before:

and After Painting:


We are using the chair at our craigslist purchased desk but are hoping in the near future to purchase a larger more substantial chair and desk. This is due to the fact that my Mr. and his 6’4 self can’t sit comfortably at this desk and my new fav little chair. I’m planning to use this desk and chair as a vanity (with a little paint on the desk and some SHINY accessories) and move it to our master bedroom. I kept this in mind when choosing fabric and paint as I upgraded the chair so it will look great in our master too! I’ll keep ya posted on that switcheroo.

This project was well worth the cost. The chair was $5, the fabric $3, batting $1, primer $4, two cans of spray paint $9. Total cost: $21.00.



Amazing what a little fabric and spray paint can do!

That’s my Shiny ~



  1. Wow how amazing your work, I like the new color of the chair. Now its become stylish and modern. Someday I apply this in my ergonomic chairs and I share it also. Very nice!

  2. Thanks so much! Post your project when your done!
