From Vegas to Sweden

Hi everyone, Well its that time again Make it for Monday. I love Mondays now because of this.
How do you go from Vegas to Sweden, its all in the paint, baby. I started off with this rather Vegas like chair, black with gold accents. I'm sure it was pretty at one point (Maybe 1984????). I do however see the potential in it, the Rococo line. So I decided to go for it.
I had this.......
Yummy gold details (yuck!!!!)
I wanted this, a beautiful Swedish Rococo chair......

I got this, very close without the price tag of a real antique. I primed, painted (Its a misty Swedish green I had color matched), distressed and glazed. The seat bottom is a fabric from JoAnn Fabrics that had a Swedish feel. I love it and I have one more to go, then I can have my front porch sitting area Swedish style. After all this is The Swedish Room.
No more gold detail Yaaaaa!!!
For more Marvelous Make It For Monday Makeovers go see Cindy at

  1. Your chair looks wonderful! Great job.

  2. SOOOO much better! Why was black and gold ever popular???? Ah well, it's fodder for our creativity :)

    So glad you could Mi4M!
