Everything is bigger in Texas…Even the color! Viewer Boots Walker of San Antonio describes her DIY renovation of drab chairs, into Lone Star State ready décor:

Alright ya’ll, to make a statement, you’ve got to go high gloss.  Start with some antique chairs, and find the brightest, shiniest high gloss/oil-based paint you can find.  For my chairs, I decided to go red.   Now before you start painting, you’ve got to do something with those seat cushions.  I pulled those suckers off, and hit the nearest fabric store.  Living in Texas made me realize, there is never enough cow print.   I purchased a few yards of faux cowhide and recovered the cushions.  All you need to do is wrap the fabric around the cushion and get yourself a heavy-duty industrial stapler and fasten it underneath.  Now, as a southern lady, you never want to let the folks see you without your face, so take a look at the finished chairs.  Always remember, make your house, into YOUR home.  Home should always be a reflection of your style, and personality.  Now go ahead ya’ll and make yourselves a signature piece.    Have a DIY project of your own that you want to share?
