We'll admit it—this chair wasn't all that much to look at when we first saw it. But with a little TLC and a seriously impressive furniture makeover, this once-drab piece of furniture is now fit for a royal.
The best part? No royal price was paid.
As Reddit user kitney put it, the $20 chair received a $20 makeover. Now that's a sentence we love to read. And once we saw the startling end result, we loved it even more than before.
So how did this genius Reddit user pull this challenge off? Well, the first step was to remove the super old-fashioned skirting around the legs. Then, the legs got a hefty dose of spray paint, to give them a fresh pop of color after they had been hidden for so long beneath the skirting. Next, it was time to tackle the plain arms and bottom of the chair.
This involved a nail head trim both up the arms and on the bottom of the structure. And finally came the nail head trim along the sides of the chair, as a final step—for now, that is.
The Reddit user confessed to thinking about purchasing new legs for the chair, but the ones that seemed to be the best fit were a bit out of the allotted price range. As for us, we think the new chair is perfectly beautiful as is. But nothing's wrong with adding a little extra pizazz.
And considering how budget-friendly this whole operation was, we're sure it'll be pizazz that just about any homeowner's wallet can handle. Bravo!
