Dear Natasha is hosting the Revamp It Party for the second year. I wasn't a part of it last year but it was a huge success and a lot of fun. Everyone's revamped projects were wonderful.
As I was driving to the grocerie store on friday, I passed a thrift store and they had this chair sitting outside for sale. I do not know why I love chairs. I place them around the house to catch whatever... Purses, clothes, bags or well, I guess to sit on... =) But I told myself, Oh no...this one will go in my vendor booth downtown, I can Revamp It and sell it. In the mean time I use it to prop pillows I sell on it... So low and behold, it ended in my trunk.I got it for $5.
The white fabric was dirty and a leg was a tad loose so I tightened and glued the leg, removed the seat and sanded it down. I have to be honest, I take short cuts when I refinish furniture because when I have a picture in my head of what I want it to look like, I cannot wait to have that picture alive. I can also call that impatience.
Anyway!! After I sanded it to where the gloss was removed I primed it, then primed it again...
Then I painted it and sanded it to smoothen the paint and painted it again...
When I do the final sanding, I like to go sporadic and uneven. I just love the way it looks.
As for the seat, the fabric I really loved to see on it was the Rachel Ashwell's blush rose.
Hmmm, big mistake... or was it?? My daughter's bedroom has the matching fabric balloon shade.
I wanted to take pictures of the chair so I took it up in my daughter's bedroom... It never made it out of there. It so happened that a couple of plush animals were laying on the changing table and I couldn't use it... But, now I can because I have a matching chair to put the plush toys on. Love it!!
I hope you liked my quick Revamp project. Please hop on to Natasha Burn's blog for other Revamped projects.
