Introduction: Madge, the Funky Green Chair

This is an extreme case, because who would think to use this color of paint... for furniture??  Usually not me!!  Found this very old chair on the verge of hittin the landfill... I rescued her and made her look pretty again :)  The chair wasn't enough by itself, so I searched thru my junk and found a little side table, painted it the same color as the chair.  Now Madge has a partner :) 

Step 1:

Here she is, Madge, so sad looking, about to join the millions of others just like her in the dump...  So, I started sanding!!

Step 2:

I got some paint, and got started!  She got 3 coats of this "green snowcone"  At first I wasn't too keen on the idea of a hot green chair.. but I gave it a chance. 

Step 3:

I fell in love with this velvety upholstery material, gave Madge some new foam, and new upholstery tacks!
