Hair Cut & Chair Makeover

 Last Monday I took Beulah 

to Petco for a spa treatment.

Why do we treat our dogs

better than we treat ourselves, LOL.



While she was getting pampered

I went to our Senior Center 

Thrift Store and purchased two

old wooden chairs . . .


with dirty old padded seats.

$5 each 



After getting them home 

and spray painted them . . .


and recovered the seats. . .



Here's how they turned out.


I'm very happy with 

the finished re-do :)


So that's what I've been doing.

I hope this encourages any of 

you that, like me, 

furnish your homes on a tight budget. 

God bless you all

and thanks for stopping by,

Your blogging sister,

Connie :)





  1. I love the chair makeovers! I think that is a very similar color to the one I used to paint my porch chairs. Very pretty!

  2. Beulah looks great with her haircut! I love what you have done with those chairs, they look fantastic!

  3. Your chair makeover is a great success. What a cozy dining room you have.

  4. You've transformed those chairs completely!! Good work. ( Pretty fabric that you chose for the seats).
    Beulah has also been somewhat transformed. Her haircut sure changes the way she looks.

  5. Those chairs are lovely. I sure with I had taken some lessons from you whe we were so close. Our new (second hand), dining room chairs are covered in cream colored material and definitely could use recovering but I don't have a clue how to do it. I think in the spring I'll watch some youtube videos and see if I can figure it out.
    Buelah is lovely. She looks quite proud of herself. :-)

  6. Nice going there with the Chairs and Seat Covers- what a transformation- brilliant work CONNIE. Best Wishes. KEV.

  7. Beulah looks adorable. Gibbs and I both got haircuts recently and his was way more than mine was.
    Those chairs look fantastic. You are so good at things like that. The whole dining room set looks amazing.

  8. Oh, how beautiful! I just love the way they look at your table! You did an excellent job!

  9. What a great addition to your table. You found 2 great deals.

  10. The chairs turned out so great and look perfect at your farmhouse table. You room looks so inviting and pretty. Wish I could visit in person! Holiday hugs, Diane

  11. Excellent job on the chairs!! Love them.

  12. Really enjoying your DIY projects, Connie. Keep finding bargains and redoing them♥

  13. I absolutely love the finished look of the farm house table and the chairs. You do amazing work. Your home is so cozy and warm and inviting. I love it!

  14. Beulah is looking good - and she looks like she knows it too!
    The chairs turned out so good!

  15. Oh Connie.. Buelah looks a little puzzled!!! what happened to my fur coat?? (but she's so pretty!). Your chairs are just perfect and I love that color of blue.. and the cushions are so pretty! I like the calming colors of that teal blue. I find myself needing to be kept busy. Of course, with Christmas, I will be.. but after the first of the year, then what? Well then I guess I tackle organizing my garage. Love to you... Marilyn

  16. Connie, you are AMAZING ! I love your style and your home !

  17. They look amazing, Connie, so professional, and a lovely colour.

  18. I like your chairs very much. And Beulah looks quite pleased with herself. Who is the little sweetie in the background?

  19. What gorgeous chairs now! The lines of them are fantastic, and the paint color and recovered pads just look terrific. You really hit the jackpot with those. Beulah is looking fine and festive, too!

  20. What did Beulah think of her hair cut experience, I wonder? You always work wonders on your woodwork makeovers, well done you!

  21. What a transformation in those chairs... well done! I love the color.

  22. Merry Christmas Connie. I love the "new" chairs. I also like that your chairs are different. That always makes me think of big family gatherings when every chair in the house was used. Praying you have a safe and happy holiday. Blessings, xoxo,love, Susie

    1. You have such a talent to make your home so lovely and inviting! Nancy

  23. Beautiful chairs! Stay warm and safe!
