I love before and afters but they don't always work out. I try to up my chances of success by choosing projects that were so bad before, that almost any change would be an improvement. Check out this chair.
I have two of them and they aren't pretty, but they used to belong to my grandmother so I didn't want to let them go.
I removed the back cushion, added a little gray paint plus a little of this:
And the result is attractive chairs that also have sentimental value. Success!
** After I posted this, my husband informed me that he still thinks this chair is pretty ugly. Maybe my project wasn't as successful as I thought? Oh, well. You can't please everyone :)
