Fab Flippin Furniture Contest GEOMETRIC Makeover

 Good Morning my Beauties!
Its time for another Fab Flippin Furniture Makeover.
 This month at the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest, it's all about "Geometric Design".
So welcome September and what better way to bring in one of my favorite months than to have General Finishes sponsor it!!  
For this months makeover I decided to take this plain jane chair and Jazz it up with some Geometric Fabric and some awesome General finishes  
Somerset Gold Milk Paint.

General Finishes makes painting not only fun, but if you are new to painting or their line, they helpful videos on YouTube to help guide through the process.  I love that if I feel stuck or if someone asks about a process, I can go right to their General Finishes YouTube channel to watch a step by step guide!!

  You can see here that I started with a plain and simple old chair. the chair was structurally fine but had some scratches and grooves in the wood. 
I lightly sanded those down and got to painting with my gorgeous Somerset Gold Milk paint.

 once I gave the chair two coats of paint I removed the seat and started recovering it using some fun geometric fabric.
Once I recovered the seat I screwed the seat back on.
I love how the color of the paint and the fun fabric transformed this once plain and boring chair into 
something fun and funky!

I hope you enjoyed this latest makeover and 
I hope that you check out some of my friends who are participating in the Fab Flippin Furniture Contest.
