Vintage Desk Chair Makeover

Liz Marie, from Liz Marie Blog, is the proud owner of an amazing vintage wood desk chair that looks like it probably cost several hundred dollars from a store like Pottery Barn, with its beautiful rich wood and wonderful typography burlap fabric.


But of course, this desk chair wasn’t a costly purchase from Pottery Barn.  She found the chair about a year ago, and it looked a little different than it does today, with dull wood, and worn out fabric.


While she was working on her office space recently, she remembered this (potentially) lovely little chair that had been sitting in her garage, and was happy to finally have a use for it.

She cleaned up the wood with some sandpaper, then used Minwax Special Walnut stain to bring the wood back to life.  She also removed the top and bottom cushions, removed the old and worn out fabric, and replaced it with the typography burlap fabric from Hobby Lobby.  What a perfect addition to her new office area!
