Before and After

I bought this "french" chair at an auction a few years ago for $20. It was a dark wood color and had a gold and green velvet upholstered seat. I loved the lines, and had previously had covered it myself in a lime green fabric. With my new living room I though it would fit perfectly with just a few changes.
I painted the wood using a metallic paint in titanium. (You can buy this color at Hobby Lobby, the jar is small but it goes a long way). The fabric was a remnant I purchased at Rio Bravo in down town Mcallen for $8 ( a little pricey for a remnant but it was too pretty to pass up). I just added some batting and staple gunned the new fabric over the old upholstery for a very quick fix.

New Furniture = New Living Room Arrangement

With the arrival of my new furniture pieces, I needed to re-work my living once again. I ended up shifting everything around and positioning the pieces on different walls. Below is what I have a come up with thus far. I am still a little stuck on what accessories to place on the coffee table....
