A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Oooh....I haven't done any chairs in awhile...

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Oooh....I haven't done any chairs in awhile...

I found these two chairs. Good shape. But kind of on the ugly 1970's realm. But, who doesn't love a pair of french provincial chairs?

So, lets see them....

So cute. Oh, since you're dying to know...they were $6.99 a piece. I heart my local Goodwill.

Oh, and I found out they are building one in MY town! Yippee for me!

I primed them with Kilz. Let them sit overnight, sanded a little and wiped them down. Then sprayed them Rustoleum white in semi-gloss. I still got a little of that very frustrating crackling. It drives me batty. BUT, it worked for the effect I was going for here.

I then waited another day to sand them. With my hand sander. Beauty.

Oh, and I used some leftover material I had from this project. Oh, that chair. I loved that chair.

I did that chair way back when....you can see the step by step of how I reupholstered it right here.

So, I had just a little left. Well, actually, I did these chairs with it too. These are Leah's all time favorite chairs, aren't they, Leah?!

There were two. They are glorious. And so comfy. And so glorious. And gorgeous. And I just love them. I used Rustoleum sunflower yellow, or safflower yellow? I can't remember the name.

So, I had just a tiny bit left. Seriously, only enough to finish these two chairs.

I seriously need a new place to photograph my stuff. Maybe a back drop? A sheet? The garage door? Anything but that dirty garage floor!

Aren't they just great?!

It amazes me how a few coats of paint and some left over fabric can completely change a piece of furniture!

They are building a new big Goodwill here so maybe I can find a few treasures. Amazing transformations on your projects.
