My First DIY Chair Makeover

When I was given an opportunity to attend to a DIY workshop with Amy Howard and Ace Hardware, I was so excited to attend, and then so bummed that I couldn’t make it work with my schedule.

Decorating Ideas: I'm thrilled by how easy, affordable, and confidence-building my first DIY chair makeover was, in collaboration with Ace Hardware. Can you believe the difference in the before and after of these Neoclassica lyre-back chairs in the style of Duncan Phyfe? #sponsored #ad

I was familiar with Amy as a luxury home furnishings designer and a furniture restoration expert with an artisan-quality paint products line available at Ace, so I knew I’d be missing out. When Ace Hardware was kind enough to offer me Amy Howard at Home products to try my own DIY makeover, I was intimidated. I’d never done a DIY furniture makeover before!  So I did a quick search on craigslist, replied to a few listings, secured a pair of chairs for $45 (<img src="×72/1f60d.png&quot; alt="
