In my spurt of the moment decision to clean out the furnace room and to make room for more clothes that my daughter has outgrown (it is unbelievable how fast kids grow) I decided to paint this chair I had sitting in there since last summer! Yes I am one of those "furniture hoarders"!
It had great bones and there was really nothing wrong with it but lets be serious, what doesn't look better with a coat of paint? Am I right?
I gave it a coat of primer and then one coat of a custom mixed blue. I knew I wanted to distress it and I love the look of the white bleeding through so I decided against the second coat of blue.
I let it dry overnight and distressed it the next day.
With a final coat of dark wax she was ready for her photo shoot!
I changed the seat fabric to this soft floral and the vintage flare started to come alive!
Here we are with a final side by side. Now don't you agree, a coat of paint can bring out hidden beauty!
