Raspberry Side Chair

Here is a project I did a couple of months ago that I thought I'd share.  It's a side chair that I painted in a raspberry color and recovered the seat with something bright and fun.

It's so funny now my projects fit my mood of the day.  I'm so glad I don't keep everything I redo, otherwise my house would be funky and not just eclectic.  When you live in a city where things are not always bright and sunny your mood can change from sunny to dark instantaneously.  The way I look at it, living in a place like Cincinnati just helps give my customers variety.

Here is the  chair before, It was okay, but not terrific.  I had it sitting in my formal living room until I could figure out what to do with it.

Here is the frame after a few coats of raspberry spray paint

Here is the fabric I chose to put on the seat

Isn't it fun?  What girl wouldn't want a girl power chair?  I think it would look really cute sitting on a front porch as well.  Why not? Have some fun.
