The Happy Birthday Chair :)

In my husbands real estate business, he often comes across what I like to refer to as "treasures". This chair was one of them. When he pulled this out of his truck I was giddy, I knew I could give it new life :) My daughter Rio turns 22 on Wednesday, and this little chair was calling her name.

The before:


The after!!!
With just 2 coats of high gloss white paint and a piece of Chewbacca like black fabric... Voila!!
A chair that just says.... Rio :)



Happy Birthday my sweet baby girl :)
