A New Chair & Spray Painted Legs

There has been an ongoing search in our household for quite sometime now for a new chair for our living room. We went through a few chairs in the corner in the living room, but always knew that they were temporary. This past week Mr. LMB & I  suddenly got the urge to really start looking for a more permanent chair for the living room & we thought this it was going to take a lot more searching. We wanted a wing back chair that was tufted & possibly a grayish taupe color. After going to Target for a cherry coke & coming out of their with some barstools {Target gets me every single time. Check my Instagram to see the barstools} we went to our local mall where we wandered into the TJ Maxx {Also never a good idea!}. While in the store I spotted a wingback chair that made my heart skip a beat I knew it was the one.

Before we look at the new chair, let’s take a trip down memory lane of the chairs in this corner in the living room…

This black beauty was the original chair in this corner of the living room when we first moved in our home. I actually picked this chair up at a garage sale when I was in high school. My love for re-doing furniture & vintage finds started very early on! We still have this chair, but it currently no longer has a place in our home.

The next chair in the corner of the living room is this lovely wicker chair that I thrifted from a local flea market. It’s a Pier One wicker chair that was missing a cushion when I got it. After purchasing a new cushion & fixing the chair up a little, it was as good as new. This chair is now in our front guest bedroom & I’m still loving it.

& here is the new chair! Isn’t she pretty? I am loving this new chair & this little corner in the living room a lot more now. Also, notice how that throw never changes. It’s my favorite throw of all time that I purchased at Meijer before we even built this house. The chair is really comfortable & I’ve already sat here countless times since purchasing the chair a few days ago.  The only issue with the chair when we bought it was the legs of the chair. They were a light pine color & I knew that wouldn’t go well in our home. Luckily for us we all know I like to paint everything I get my hands on.

Please excuse the awful cell phone photo I took in our house when it was getting dark outside, but you can see that the legs were just not going to work. For a temporary fix I spray painted them with my favorite bronze spray paint. You can read more about that spray paint {here}. We are actually wanting to replace the legs on this chair in the near future with something very different, but for now they are much prettier in bronze.

What do you think of our new lovely little chair & it’s new spray painted legs? It’s fun to look back at all the changes our living room has been through & I’m really happy that we finally found more of a permanent chair for this little spot.

  1. Ooohh, I was in Home Goods this weekend and saw that chair! I too loved it and tried it out. It was meant to be in your cozy corner!

  2. Gorgeous! What a great idea for a temp fix to the legs. Curious: where is your bicycle pillow…and your number pillow? Lol. If they need a home….let me know ;)

    • hahaha so glad you love it!! Ummmm the pillows are still in the house. I have a buyer for the bicycle pillow, but if it falls through you are next on the list :) :) They would be perfect in your house!

  3. I think you may have convinced me to buy that chair! I’ve been eyeing the two them in Home Goods the past like week and a half. I can’t find that “steal of a deal” anywhere else. Seriously, as much as it pains me to pay for good items, it really is a great price for a chair that size!!

  4. I am in love with your new chair! The legs of it look so good. It really looks like a comfy place to sit and read for a while. For the record, I am also in love with your J & L pillow and am now googling where to get my own! ;)

  5. The new chair is perfect for that spot! I really like that you painted the legs, too.

  6. pretty! good call on the darker legs!

  7. Very nice find! I love places like TJ Maxx & Home Goods for all home decor needs! Glad you painted the legs…much better now!

  8. I read earlier posts and saw that you plan on moving, will you be putting your furniture up for sale or will you be packing up everything with you?

    • Great question! We plan on taking some with us, but not all of it. We are going back and forth between selling our house partially furnished or selling a lot of items. I will be updating the blog with that update on what we decide very soon! xx

  9. I bought that exact same chair back in the fall from HomeGoods and love it Liz! Love how you spray painted the legs. The legs were the only thing I did not like about the chair. I have not decided yet what color to make mine.

    • I think we are going to get some super chunky legs for this baby or make it into a rocker.. we haven’t decided yet, but for now these bronze legs will do great. I think some fun metal legs would be great too!!! Great minds think alike.. I LOVE this chair!!! I’m in good company :) xx

  10. It’s truly beautiful! I’m in search for the perfect chair too!! Hopefully I will find our perfect chair soon hehe.. love the pillow too!

  11. The legs look great and I love you pillow choices!

  12. I am a sucker for tufting and the dark legs makes that chair look richer! Any that pom pom throw is to die for!

  13. I’ve almost bought this chair for myself like 10 different times, I bought a pair for a client &LOVED them. Spray painting the legs is an excellent idea!

  14. I love the styles of all those chairs.

  15. Beautiful and it looks so comfy!

  16. That chair is gorgeous with darker legs! Love it.

  17. Looks great! I have much love for all things tufted:) I also adore your pillow, especially the old-timey bicycles. I’m dying to know where I can get my hands on that fabric! Did you have it made, or did you just lucky upon it?

  18. Hi there colleagues, how is all, and what you want to say
    regarding this post, in my view its actually remarkable in support of me.

  19. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m
    having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  20. Ok this is hilarious because I JUST bought this chair last weekend from TJ Maxx! I will be staining the legs rather than painting them, but they will be dark just like yours. And it’s also going in a place where we’ve replaced a chair 3 times. Too funny! Great minds think alike;)
