Yes… We are at it again… Another DIY Project!
Every time I go to thrift stores, I am always drawn to the section with all the fun chairs! I love vintage chairs with interesting shapes and forms. Even an “ugly” chair can be brought back to a new life! I am drawn to pieces glazed with bold or metallic colors, especially since I have so many dark brown/walnut furniture pieces already!
Well… I have been searching for a new desk chair for quite some time. Since Kevin and I want to buy matching desks (since we share an office), I opted to buy a chair that was both inexpensive and versatile (in case I decided to switch it out). So, I ran to my local Goodwill and just happened to find the perfect chair and only for $7.99. So, the next stop was the paint store where I decided to have a little fun and select a metallic finish! There’s nothing like spending Sunday afternoon refurbishing furniture!!
So… here were my steps.
1. Buy the “ugly” chair
2. Unscrew & remove the seat cushion
3. Clean the Chair removing dust etc.
4. Do a little sanding (in this case it didn’t need a lot)
5. Prime the chair
6. Re-upholster the chair
7. Spray the chair the final color
8. Re-attach the seat cushion
This is such an easy DIY Project. It took me all of about 2.5 hour’s total and the results are stunning!
