Refinished Wood Chair Painted Blue
Contributed by Paige at Faith’s Place
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…..
And, the AFTER…..
I can’t wait to get my hands on something else to refinish now!!!!!
