Revamp: Funky Damask chair
I'm back with an update on one of my goodwill finds that I told you about in this post.
I picked this up for $14. and spend about $6. on fabric (that was 40% off). I got the paint for free from my parents left over from what I used to re-do a built in cabinet for them. I used Deep Torquiose from Laura Ashely. It is the same color that Edie used on her armoire that I love!
Once the paint was completely dry, I went over it with light sand paper. I did one more super light coat on some sections. Once that was dry, I distressed the edges and anywhere that normal wear and tear would show. Now that some of the original wood was showing through and everything was dry- I used Minwax wipe on Poly. Let dry, and reattached the newly upholstered seat.
I think I'm gonna sell this one, I have too many chairs.
*update: the fabric is from Waverly and it comes in a few different colors. You can get it at most big fabric stores.
