Say hello to Diane of The Paint Factory and this chair. Diane writes that it, "was just some boring ugly chair. I think it was covered in brown vinyl, which someone thought at one point would look lovely on a chair. It did not."
Diane painted the chair using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles and Primer Red. She then dark waxed over it.
She reupholstered the chair in Annie Sloan French Hens Fabric.
Last year Diane had bought several vintage grain sacks at a salvage place in Oregon. She fell in love with the "Perfection" one and used it on the back of the chair. Diane loves how the graphic lines tie into the shape of the chair. She only paid $6 for that grain sack. What a bargain for such a statement piece. It really takes this chair over the top.
That IS perfection! All of those elements, the paint colors, the fabric, the grain sack - everything looks like they were meant to be together. No surprise that this chair sold VERY QUICKLY.
Let's take one more look at it side by side...
Diane and The Paint Factory are based in Hillsboro, Oregon. You can find her items online, too, in her Etsy shop. Head over to The Paint Factory's Facebook page. Diane has some beautiful makeovers on there plus she's funny. Let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin' and give her some flack for not taking before pictures.
Thanks so much Diane for sharing your fabulous furniture flip!
See you tomorrow!
