So, now we have our shopping list of what we are looking for and off to the stores we go.
Tip # 2 – Keep An Open Mind
With your shopping list in mind, you may not find exactly what you are looking for. Here’s where you need to keep an open mind. From your inspiration picture, you are looking for a decorative side chair for your bedroom. You have that finished product in your mind and you most likely won’t find that exact chair. So, in keeping an open mind, look at the lines and sturdiness of a chair instead of the scratches and ugly worn fabric on the seat. As long as the chair is structurally sound and you like the lines of it, you can make it look just like what you have in mind with a little paint and new fabric for the seat. You can easily find a great chair for less than $10 – I usually pick them up for about $5 like these.
Just remember, a little paint can fix almost anything…even lamps.
