joëlle from umbu lumière sent over this beautiful chair makeover. after picking up this antique chair on a free “bulk goods” day (basel, switzerland’s version of curbside freebies), joëlle redid the chair’s seat and, in the interest of leaving a little bit of the original wood, repainted just the outer frame white. and my favorite part? joëlle used an old skirt of hers to redo the seat! that’s clever and budget-friendly upholstery. thanks for sharing, joëlle!

CLICK HERE for lia’s lamp makeover after the jump!
lia fagan sent in these lovely revamped lamps. they were given to her by a family member who no longer wanted them and were transformed with a coat of satin-finish apple green paint and new shades made from anna maria horner‘s “drawing room” fabric. great work, lia!
