Remember when Danny wore black & pink to the prom? I fell in love with
him it THEN. I was 10 and my Mom & Dad took me to see the movie “Grease”. Danny was so smooth, and charming. Add a little romantic chic & feminine and BOOM…you have my “Black & Pink Chair Makeover”.
So yah, I like black & pink together. Was it “Grease” that did it? I have no idea. Either way you have to admit that they are a great pair. Sexy, bold, chic, romantic, feminine, yet masculine. They are just darn pretty together.
So, when my oldest daughter picked out this beautiful pink rose fabric I just had to have it. I knew it would make these chairs that I inherited POP with interest.
Here they were in our bedroom about 8 years ago. I love the shape.
(see our bedroom now HERE)
Way Way Before
Here they are when I attempted to get bold.
Way Before (click for more on this transformation).
Then, I got really bold and reupholster them with a zebra print blanket that had ripped. It was a perfect match because the blanket was from my Mom, and the chairs were originally from her Dad in the late 50’s (maybe that’s why I chose black & pink, hmmmm???).
They looked really good, and I actually kept the zebra fabric under the rose fabric if I want to go back to it. Plus, it’s from my MOM!
Here’s one for Valentine’s Day…aren’t those black shoes sexy? I bet my husband wishes I would wear them.
Okay, so here’s one now all embellished with pink roses. It almost looks like a cake. Or possibly one of those 1975 pool caps we had to wear in the gym pool. Oh no, I hope it doesn’t 😯 .
Oh look…here’s my handsome grandfather hanging over his chairs with his great granddaughter’s fabric. Pretty cool. I know he would LOVE them. I just happened to have a pink rose frame.

Do you love that little silver accent table like I do?
If so, you can get the entire look here…all you need are some arm chairs to paint black (the link to the full tutorial is above on how to reupholster & paint the chairs).

I think I might watch Grease this weekend. Have a good one!
