The best way to update a room on a budget is to update an old chair. If you have a wing chair or other hand me down that feels dated due to the dark mahogany wood or the dreary dated fabrics, find inspiration with these photos and tips.


These wing chairs have an updated look through the
paint technique on the wood & with the updated linen fabric. 
Consider painting the frame, if you prefer a bright paint, use lacquer or gloss. 
You could also paint it black, or white, the options are endless!
