Grey & White Rolling Chairs Redo

I have been on a furniture refinishing roll lately!! 
My garage is starting to look less like Goodwill and more like Pier one :) 

Well in the colors anyways. 

I love seeing all the happy painted pieces rather than the dusty, scratched ones. 

I found two cute rolling chairs at Habitat at the beginning of the summer and they were just dying to come home with me...

Hubby wasn't quite as sold on them as I was. 
I think the casters had me completely captivated. 
(You'll see them in the afters) 

I knew they would like bright & happy with new upholstery and paint. 
They were in great condition besides a few scratches & the worn-out seat. 

I gave them a good sanding before spraypainting them with my favorite gloss white. 
I wanted to keep them classic but modern. 

After they had dried, I distressed them a bit then sealed them with my favorite wax. 
I left the casters alone- love their contrast against the white!!

I updated the seats by recovering them with a gorgeous grey & white geometric print. 
The seats unscrewed easily from underneath and I just stapled the fabric to the seat and popped them back in. 
Easy peasy. 

The casters pop in and out easily too in case they are ever not wanted. 
I love the industrial look against the clean, modern lines though :) 

Aren't they beautiful? 

I think they'd be the perfect pair of office chairs.
Or paired with a cute hexagon end table in a little reading nook. 

I've tried to convince hubby to let me keep them.
But they're up for sale as of right now. 

I threw my little placemat pillows on them for their photo shoot.
I'm totally obsessed with all things yellow right now.
And yellow with grey? Swoon. 

Ready for some before and afters??

I think they made quite the transformation with a little fabric & paint!!

What do you think??
Are you loving them as much as I am?
