Boots with the fur....

Everytime I see/read the word Boots I automatically start signing Low by Flo Rida. (Totally had to google that had no idea who's song that was.)

This morning Erin posted this stylish chair by Empiric Studio






It was described as having boots due to the legs dipped in white! I love the color combo and thought it would make for an easy DIY seeing that the chair retails for $325. Not a crazy price for that good looking chair, but totally something that can be recreated with any chair.

I couldn't find a budget friendly version of the exact chair, but this one has a similar feel to the legs and can be covered in a fun fabric for $99:



Another option with a similar look would be this one for $105:



All you need now is a 2 of your favorite spray paint colors and some painters take! I can't wait to use this with a client!

*Update just found the exact style chair at Ballard for $299 you can get a set of 2:

I like to use the word "slippered." I actually just finished some dining chairs with this feel (they're for sale)( =...I love the look. I think any of those chairs you chose above would work beautifully!

I think a video with chairs dancing to that song would actually be hilarious. Like all the chairs at the bar after everyone has gone home. They have such personality! Am I the only one? Guess that's why I was never in advertising...

Thats a cute idea! I just bought a simular chair from a garage sale of $ 5 bucks, mine has a cane seat. i'm going to paint it bright yellow or white and keep in our living room for extra seating

What about the apple bottom jeans? I just saw barstools like these (without the boots)in a rustic wood in my cousins kitchen. They were great looking!!

I'm the same way whenever I say shots. I end up singing that LMFAO song - shots, shots, shots, shots...everybody.

I swear I'm not an alcoholic.
And yes, the chair is a cutie.

It's totally in my head now too! Love the look. Do you think it would be attractive on a wooden folding chair also? Maybe I should paint the chair a base color, then paint on some white boots....
