repainted and reupholstered chairSummer is my favorite time of the year, not only for the warm weather and outdoor food, but for the endless garage sales and flea markets. I sure do enjoy looking for an unbeatable bargain. Usually, I can find something to drag home that is in desperate need of a makeover, and is fairly cheap.

Kathy Peterson enjoys flea markets too, especially the World's Longest Yard Sale, which is hosted by several states. She managed to find a really ugly chair that was dirty and in dire need of a coat of paint and some new fabric, so she took it home and gave the chair a royal makeover.

To freshen up the chair, she removed the pad and batting, cleaned and painted the chair, and then stapled on some of her favorite fabric. When she was done, she attached fabric with hot glue to cover any exposed staples. The chair was then ready to be used for her daughter-in-law's bridal shower.
