Makeover Project

I did this project a while back with the intention of sharing a kind of how to makeover project (but then I forgot) so here it is now. I found these chairs at my favorite junk shop. The canning was in perfect condition and the cushions were clean and in good shape.

I loved their shape and size and had a vision in my head of what they could look like.

I started by sanding lightly, being very careful of the canning. I washed them throughly and let them dry. I then applied a good primer coat to the arms, legs, etc. with a brush. I sprayed the canning with a can of primer. Next I applied two coats of paint with a brush all over, again, being very gentle on the canning. I had the cushions recovered in a pretty white fabric with pink and green stripes. I topped the project off with a floral pillow I made. Quite a transformation, don't you think?


Thanks for visiting ...
