Up – cycled Stripy Dining Chairs

IMG_1245This weekend I have finally up – cycled my dining chairs. Well, my Mum covered them, she’s much more practical than me when it comes to upholstery. :) But, I can take some credit for painting them.

Before they were a stained pine, which looked more like oak and covered in a floral print. You can see them in a recent post.

I bought them a few years ago and had every intention of doing them up straight away to brighten the kitchen. But, of course it has taken a while as most things do in your own home.

In the fabric delivery there were some very welcome sweeties to keep us company. Very nice they were too ! DC1

I’m really happy with the colour that they exude in the day time and evening. It has bought all of the colours in my kitchen together and I think finished it off really well.

This stripe is very bright, I bought it from DeckChair Stripes and they have loads of different colour options. The paint is Clunch by Farrow & Ball.

The print above the chairs is by the lovelyBrighton based artist Kitty Finegan who designed my new LucyLovesYa logo. I am a huge fan of hers. :)

What do you think of my new chairs ? Would love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a comment below to tweet me @lucylovesyablog.

Lucy, they are gorgeous! I love that you painted them white and used such bold striped material to cover them. I love to recover and repurpose things too! Upcycling is “IN”! Tell mum she did a fabulous covering job! ;)
