Do you remember me posting about this lovely little chair I had as a child that needed  upholstering?

Well the lovely Kristy from over on 4theloveofwood has kindly been putting some ideas together for me. This is a big challenge for me as I have never done any upholstering before & I want to get it right as this cute little chair has been in my family for a very long time.
One suggestion she had for me was to go for an organic large bold coloured print to jazz up the simple lines. I love the look of these chairs & kirsty was right in saying she had a feeling I would love the yellow! (Oh Kirsty you have me worked out), although I do LOVE it in the red as well. These printed fabrics on a white painted base would be gorgeous although now I am slightly torn since she threw another idea at me that really caught my eye....

....... I also LOVE the idea of the black painted wood with the black & white printed fabric. Oh no..HELP ME people what do you think?

Kirsty also suggested to fill in and upholster the side panels of the chair to give it a whole new look completely. Im toying with this idea if I go with the bold coloured fabrics. hmmmm whats a girl to do? What do you all think I would love your feed back on this.

Well Kirsty had lots of ideas for me & if you want to see the full post or you would like some advice on some furniture makeovers you want to try out yourself blog hop over now to  where you will find helpful tips & ideas on furniture revival. There are some amazing makeovers that kirsty has done herself for you to see
