Before and After: Off-the-Street Chair

When I moved to San Francisco last October, Mike and I picked up this free chair down the block:




Thank you Sam Berman for this “before” pic.  Despite the chipped blue paint and the fact that the chair didn’t match our kitchen-color-plan (citrus), Sam was very upset I was going to give the chair a make-over (hence the “before” documentation).  Sorry Sam!  I like it better now.


I spray painted the legs and made a custom-fit cushion using “wizard of oz” poppy fabric from Cliff’s, pom-pom trim, fabric-covered buttons and 1″ thick foam.



It matches our storage pegboard, which I painted and Scott hang.
