Upholstered Chair Makeover with Pearl’s Paint Chalk Paint

Chairs before and after_Fotor

I couldn’t believe it when my mom showed me a picture of an upholstered chair redone with chalk paint!!  I have been going through the agonizing process of ripping off old fabric and cording and attempting to make something look great.  That didn’t work so well.  Then, when she told me about this, I found two old upholstered chairs for $5 each at a sale.  Since I make my own paint (and sell it :)) I decided I didn’t have much too loose.  It is  AWESOME!!  This went on simply and then I just distressed it a bit on the wooden frame.  They are now sitting proudly in my office, and it has put a smile on my husband’s face because I paid $10 for our chairs!

Most everyone wants to help.  Most everyone wants to contribute to something beyond themselves.  This is a simple way to do it.  20% of all sales of Pearl’s Paint go to Pearl Alliance to help stop human trafficking.  The funds go to help rescue and restore lives.

There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history, with an estimated 27 million in bondage across the globe. Men, women, and children are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will.

My mom and I began repurposing furniture.  We created our own chalk paint.  We sell it locally, and I would love to share it with you.  There is an option at the very bottom of the page to purchase your own paint.  Pints are $11 and quarts are $23.  We offer the following colors, but are delighted to make custom orders for an additional $3 charge.
