Oh my goodness…I’ve been working on three chairs over the last few days, with my husband, reupholstering. I still have one to go! My husband says “NO MORE CHAIRS”. I pleaded “YES”. Hey, the more I practice, the better (and faster) I’ll get, right? You know the saying; No Pain, No Gain! My intentions were to show a step by step tutorial but that quickly went by the way side as we stumbled along. The chair I’m sharing with you in this post was actually the easier of the three. Totally opposite of what we thought. I’ve had this chair for months and months. It was originally reupholstered with blue jean material (professionally) by the previous owner. But, there was a stain on the seat cushion that just wouldn’t come out so it needed to be re-done. I painted it with CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint, layering white, grey and wheat. Then, by using a damp cloth, rubbed gently to expose all the colors and in some areas all the way to the wood. I used a mix of clear and dark wax to finish and protect. I purchased the upholstery material at Joann Fabrics at 50% off. I know you’re never suppose to take photos at night but that seems to be when I get done with my projects and they are ready for their debut! So, with the professional lighting my hubby bought CHEAP at an auction ~ away we go!!!
Hope you are all have a wonderful weekend. Arizona is filled with rainy days right now and smells so good outside. My husband just asked me if I wanted to go for a ride and he would treat me to some dessert. Of-coarse, I said “yes”. So until next time…
