Okay so as promised, that beautiful $5 side chair received a makeover today. Many of you voted for yellow and that’s what we did. Here is the before picture below:

Side Chair - The Before

Isn’t the back detail and those legs gorgeous? The glossy wood finish…not so much. It looks so much better now.

It brightens up the wall just a little as its sandwiched between two large furniture pieces. Check out more eye candy below:

Not much else to say here : (

UPDATE: I was able to take some pics of the living room so you can see how it looks on the whole wall.
