I had been stuck in a rut with making over the tonne of chairs I have and it was time to take a break and do something else :0)
Be forewarned though … my husband picked up another chair and a settee for me to fix up while he was away working. While they are unique and exciting, I think it may be a while before I get to them!
Any how, on to this project!
It appeared that another DIYer tried to paint this piece using some sort of swirly technique. In my view it was a good effort but in the end it gets a failing grade … mostly because of the colors and the hardware and finish were poorly chosen
… also the sunflower mactac is ewe!
After much sanding to remove 99% of the old paint, I repainted it with chalk paint. I added antiquing wax to tone down the color and gave it new hardware.
So pretty now!
