I found this chair at my local DI for $5. However, I wasn't crazy about the fabric on the chair (or the dust and stains) and all the scratches on the chair itself. But for $5, I knew with a little paint and some new fabric, it could be great.
I took the cushion off and prepped the chair for painting. It needed to be lightly sanded in some areas and cleaned.
For this chair I painted it with Rust-o-leum (painters touch-its the best) in 'heirloom white'. It is the perfect antique white color.
Let it dry for a few hours. Then the fun part...
Then glaze. I used Ralph Lauren faux technique glaze in 'tobacco'. Sorry, I didn't take any photos of this step, but all you do is paint on (in sections) and wipe away with a rag. Remember paint then wipe away. It gives it this great aged look. The glaze gets into the little nooks and gives everything dimension. I love this stuff!
Using a staple gun and about 1/4 yard of fabric I re-upholstered the seat. I found this great fabric at Urban Renewal in St. George. I paid 5 bucks for half a yard. Notice how the glaze looks?
And your done! This chair cost me around $14 dollars and it looks faboulus in my room! This chair is the inspiration for our bedroom redo. Any ideas on a great wall color??
