Years ago I bought these 2 chairs at a flea market for R100 each. Oh what ugly mismatching little chairs they were. I then redid them by painting them white and reupholstering the seats with pieces of scrap material I had around the house.

I recently realized I want to redo them again.. it’s time! Saturday was such a miserable rainy day in Cape Town, and my amazingly talented friend Aletta & I were stuck indoors in my tiny apartment. We needed something to keep up busy and so we stated on a few diy projects. My chairs were top of the list!

I still liked the fact that the chairs were white (my weakness) but the floral prints became a bit much in my already very busy apartment. I decided to rip off the old covers and redo the seats with white fabric I had lying around.

Already it looked soooo much better, but it still needed a bit of oomph. With the pouring rain outside I needed cheering up.. Yellow was going to be the answer!! Using some masking tape to make sure I paint in a straight line I painted the top part of the 1 chair and the bottom part of the other to give a bit of variation. Loving the outcome!


  1. We find that many churches are unaware that when a room reaches a specific number of people occupying it (you will have to contact your local officials to determine this limit for your area) rules can go into effect for your seating.Ikea table hack

  2. Purchasing a chair brand new allows you to have the freedom to decide exactly what you want and need in an office chair including level of adjustability, color, or upholstery, without having to settle for anything less.recliner protectors

  3. Great write-up, I am a big believer in commenting on blogs to inform the blog writers know that they’ve added something worthwhile to the world wide web!.

  4. Used office chairs can also be a great bargain; if you do your research you may find that the product you are interested in has only been slightly used by the previous customer.Click Here
