My First Chair Redo...

August 24, 2011

These grandmother chairs have been waiting 
too long now for a paint job.
I finally got the courage and time to go for it.

I didn't feel like stripping the stain off, so I painted
it two layers of water based paint, sanded it down a bit
and gave it a clear coat of varnish.
Any little bump takes away the paint...
Conclusion...  cutting corners 
and not removing the stain makes a bad paint job!

I do like my new covers, I didn't cut corners there and 
stitched in zippers so I can wash them.

Chair number two is waiting, 
I will wash it with hot water and soap a few times
because I hate using the stripping gel, it's just too much work.
My hat off to all the blog ladies that paint furniture.
I did look for Chalk paint from Annie Sloan here,
but no store has it.


I will be joining in with  White Wednesday
