Refurbished Chair


I meant to post about this chair weeks ago, but life got in the way, I took the photos a while ago but just have not had the time to write up this post and share this with you. 

Another post on refurbishing, I can say I am hooked on doing this!

I originally bought this chair from Home Goods/TJMaxx on clearance for $30, talk about a  bargain and I have always had plans to do something with it, but it sat in our bedroom in all its brown glory for over 3 years!  Not until I recovered  the bench in this post did I realise how easy it is to change something from a bit blah to WOW! so after recovering the bench I knew that I would be able to do this chair and not make a complete mess of it.

Here is what she looked like before I sanded, primed, painted and recovered her. She didn’t look to bad really just not to my taste, can you see I still had the plastic protective coating on the chair!!! and stenciling is really not my thing!


And here she is
