Friday's For The Love Of Chairs #12

Happy Friday!

I love receiving e-mails from my readers, especially when they feed my chair obsession!  Katie, from the blog As for me and my House , sent me pics of a chair makeover she completed, and I just had to share it with you.

She started with this $15 Craig's List find.

With the help of some white paint and a fabric remnant she found at a garage sale for a $1, she gave that chair a makeover. 



I love the lines of this chair and the cane back!  The paint and new fabric really give this chair a fresh new look.  Thanks Katie for sharing your beautiful chair makeover with me. 

If you have any chairs you'd like me to show off here at Our Fifth House send me an e-mail to  My obsession needs to be fed.  :)    

Have a great weekend!  To all my friends on the east coast, please stay safe.  I'm praying for you all!  


  1. I love that chair! The cane work is something I am particularly keen on and it has an interestingly-shaped backrest overall. Looks amazing!

  2. You have to love makeovers. If you love chairs, you should check out the chair I made out of a $5 suitcase.

    Take care!

  3. This really is a fabulous chair...I'm all about the budget makeovers! And I can't believe you got $75 for your daughter's old clothes! That is definitely motivational (c: And I can't believe I didn't have you on my blog list before!! I just added you today my dear, I {heart} our fifth house! (c:

  4. Beautiful lines, and I love the fact Katie was able to make it over on a budget. Great job Katie. Happy weekend.

  5. Thanks everyone! And Thank you Carmel for featuring this!!

  6. This site has a lot of very helpful information on it. Cheers for helping me.


Be nice or I'll tell your mom! xoxo -C
