Black & White Armchair

This chair came as an inspiration from seeing so many chairs boldly doting stripes.  I picked up the chair on Craigslist for $30.  And of course, my new camera (with the before pictures on it) decided to stop working (ahh!).  So you'll have to imagine this chair looking quite sad and frumpy before.  Her frame was a natural finish and the upholstery was mauve and gold.  Seriously...sad.  

Now, she's freshly done up, sitting pretty.  I painted her in your everyday basic white from Rustoleum, then distressed her in all the right places. 

 I finished her off with some brass nail head trim.
