Sometimes a second hand chair doesn’t necessarily need to be reupholstered in order to be given a fresh new look. It might only take a coat (or two) of paint! Check out this leather wingback chair that was updated with paint only from Charming Zebra.
That chair looks so fresh and modern now! It’s amazing what a different paint made to update the look of a chair that started out looking very dark and perhaps a bit drab, and definitely more suited for the law office where these chairs were originally being used.
To see more of this paint-only transformation, head over to Charming Zebra.

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.

That’s a job for some really careful painting and/or masking. Getting paint off leather is difficult. Ask me how I know.
