Vintage Black Friday ... Creating My Own

Yes, I've resorted to creating my own vintage black furniture for Vintage Black Friday {the girl is getting desperate!} ... okay, it WAS already vintage, I only helped with the black portion ... here's a little before and after show ... let's go ...

Ugly, ugly well past their prime VINTAGE dining room chairs {shhhhh...found curbside!}

First coat of black spray paint ...


After a few more coats of spray paint .... the seat before, I should have taken pictures of each layer of fabric I tore away ... it felt like traveling thru time a few different decades ...


I chose a faux burlap feed sack to cover the seats in ... made the grain sack myself ; )


The chairs looked a bit bored and lonely, so I searched out an authentic vintage black table for them to pair up with ... this table was also a great find, not free but quite close ... I love the fluted legs and it's little hidden drawer ... you can't see the drawer, it's hidden!

Here's the new trio ...


Plus the newly covered seats ... and ta-da! .... a fresh new vintage black set ready to go!


Finished just in time to take to my new booth space today ... and hopefully sell it ... It can't stay in the foyer, doesn't work well with opening and closing the front door!

Happy Vintage Black Friday! .... can you believe next week will be the last one? ... I have some fun things planned ... enjoy your weekend, maybe shopping for some vintage black?

  2. OMG, Jill, what an absolutely WONDERFUL makeover!

    I know what you mean, I had to REALLY think about what to post today. It ended up being more a trip down memory lane . . .

    Whah, next Friday is the lst one . . . I'm looking forward to seeing what you have planned.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hugs,

  4. Beautiful!! That is so funny, I picked up a chair just like that and painted mine black, too! The burlap seat cover is genius! When I peeled back the fabrics on my chair I was amazed at the 4 decades of designer choices! From 1970's avocado floral print to 80's Southwest mania and more craziness! Fun post - Thanks for sharing!

  13. Awesome chairs and seat cushions! Personally, I think spray paint is so terribly underrated and misunderstood. It's such a great tool!

    Good luck selling them. I don't think that set will be in your booth very long.

  24. Hi Jill,

    Thank you for stopping by! No, I haven't posted about living in Portugal and Spain, just a comment here and there. I've been meaning to though. I think I'll start with my winning a Flamenco comeptition when I was around 4 :) Need to take some photographs. I'd post them next Friday BUT my dress is BLUE . . . but I do have B&W photos . . . .

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs,
    Marsha
