Are you getting sick of chair transformations yet? Ha ha. I hope not! If you missed Day 1, Day 2, or Day 3, you should check them out. I have worked really hard to refinish a bunch of chairs to be ready for this fun event! I hope you are having fun every day! This chair sat in my garage for months. (Mr. All Things Thrifty was ticked about that). I have to agree, I’m a border-line hoarder when it comes to furniture. BUT, the great thing is that it has a new home at Jill’s House. I absolutely loved the lines of this chair. The high back of the chair design caught my eye right off the bat, and the curved features are very feminine. I love it!
I painted this dainty little chicky with KILZ primer and painted it with Krylon White paint (semi-gloss). I hope you are seeing a trend here. I ALWAYS PRIME my furniture pieces. I’m telling you…you CANNOT skip this step. AND, I always use KILZ. Do I sound like a broken record? 🙂 Make sure you sand with 220 grit sand paper after the primer is dry to remove any gritty texture.
After she was bright white, I decided that she needed to be distressed, and it added the perfect amount of character. I used my electric sander to roughen it up in some spots and it turned out better than I imagined. I’m telling ya, the pictures do not do this chair justice! I upholstered the seats with fabric from the local Urban Renewal store in St. George, Utah.
Do you like it!?!
I. LOVE. IT! 🙂
