~~~~SQUUUEEAAALLLL~~~~~
 
I am soooooo excited about my new chair makeover!!!! It’s my very FIRST attempt at refinishing a piece of furniture! 
 
I wanted to start with something cheap and small to see if I could pull it off. I bought this chair at Goodwill for $4!! I figured, it’s 4 bucks; if I mess up, I’m only out of $4.
 
Here it what it looked like when I bought it last week……

I have a little electric mouse sander, so I sanded it first…nothing heavy, just enough to take some of the finish off.  I also took the million staples out of the seat to get the fabric off the original. Easy as pie!

After taking the fabric off, I measured out a new piece and restapled the new fabric to the seat with a staple gun. Again, easy peasy!
 
Next I spray painted the chair using “Ocean Breeze” blue that I purchased atWal-Mart for $3. I only needed one can.  (I was going for a color I had never used, just to try something different…now I can’t wait to use this color on more stuff).
 
I also spray on some Lacquer to give it a shine!!!
 
And here is my new sweet, fun, funky chair…..

  1. >I love how the chair turned out!! That color and fabric are so fun!! I am currently working on one for a work space. I also wanted to start with something easy. 🙂

  2. >See, you are super smart for starting small. I found a gigantic monster entertainment center for $15 so I took it home with me…. six months ago. Yep, still not done with that sucker.

    Your chair is adorable and happy, love it!
