Well, it all started when I bought a boat load (yes, that's a unit of measure) of fabulous finds.  The chair was just "thrown-in-for-free", which is always a huge score!  I really fell in love with the fabric and it's quaint design, but there were quite a few rusty spots.  Since I have little to no desire to dink around with recovering a chair this intricate, I decided to try painting the fabric.  I used plain 'ol acrylic paint and I think it turned out AmAzing!  Not too shabby for a FREE chair! 


Pattern or design used: My own design
