Calling All Readers!

By Danikaherrick @danikaherrick
Dear Readers,
You guys rock! I love sharing design ideas with you, but REALLY love when you guys share what you do with them.  Lisa from Texas just sent me this amazing chair she re-did, and I am both jealous and in awe.  This inspired me to want to start a "Reader's Score" series. I know plenty of you have them, great finds you have transformed, diamonds in the rough... well I want to see them! Please email me pictures (before & afters) and a description of where you found, what you did and any other crazy info about the score.  I really want to do this series, but I NEED you!
Now check Lisa's chair.  She says "I do not have any before pics but it was beige with a horrible burgundy cushion. In terrible shape. I found it on eBay for $55. Used two cans of red-orange Montana Gold spray paint and recovered the cushion in Canton Bazaar from Calico Corners. Fabric was on sale for $20 a yard." Calling All Readers! So for under $100 she got a fantastic chair that rivals McGuire's newly re-released Cracked Ice Chair any day!...
Calling All Readers! Thanks so much for sharing this Lisa, you did good girl! Hopefully it inspires some more DIYs and spray paint usage. If you have  one you want to show off please e-mail me... danika@danikaherrick.com I'd love to make The Reader's Score a regular series, but I'll need your help! xo Danika
