I don’t know about you but I have a few of these folding chairs lying around… ready for guests and parties and everything else that comes our way (actually, now that I think of it, I should really get some more!). When I saw this Before & After from Apartment Therapy, I knew it would resonate with hostesses and DIY decorators alike.
You could always purchase these beautiful Anthropologie folding chairs (at $200 each, see below) to get an equally bohemian and modern look, or you could invest in a few neat fabric remnants, a bit of cushion foam and a staple gun… and have at your own collection! Guests will wow over your results and love the comfy cushions.

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been searching for a great chair makeover on my local Craigslist for our guest room, only to have the perfect chair sold hours before I could nab it! Bummer. Here’s another great makeover project from the blog Matters of Style to spice up an older sitting chair for a newly appreciated place in the house. And you can’t beat the starting structure: French legs, rattan siding and an elegantly curved back.
I love the fabric and trimming — so classy!
Coming up later this week… an improptu reason to throw a party (our friends got married! and since the celebration was two weeks ago and miles and miles away, they want to celebrate with local friends and family with a second, last-minute reception) and I’m on the search for a great dessert bar for the duo. Stay tuned.

Here’s a great How-To from Apartment Therapy on a great ottoman makeover. While following the directions for this fantastic ottoman is a bit of work (and time), I’m imagining ways to simplify the process for an even quicker refashion as well!
