My client Joie had two chairs she wasn’t crazy about and was willing to pitch them.  I suggested we rework them with paint and linen and voila!  They turned out great.  Tamara Moore a decorative painter in Houston did the work (Joie has two little ones under two so she doesn’t really have time!) and she did a great job.  You can see Tamara’s work at Memorial Antique and Interiors in Houston if you live in the area. If not this is certainly a project you can tackle on your own!

Joie used a linen (elephant gray color) from for new cushions and we added extra long ties for a ballerina look from the back!

Pillow from Target!

Good job Joie and Tamara!
