These two sad chairs have been sitting in my garage all winter~
After a nice sanding, a spray of Kilz, and another light sanding, they were ready to go!
I sprayed on a coat of peacock blue ("Caribe") from Home Depot.
Next, they got a heavy distressing with 60 grit sandpaper (80 grit works great, too).
After that I went over them with a finer grit sand paper to smooth it out.
I glazed with RL black glaze mostly by just brushing on and wiping some off with a damp cloth~
The glaze relaxed the blue just the right amount!
After two coats of poly, the painting part of this project was in the bag!
This fun fabric at Hobby Lobby was the perfect match for recovering the "new" chairs.
I used a 40% off coupon I found online from HL to buy a staple gun that I was going to need for my first recovering project. :)
There are so many tutorials on recovering chairs, and I am so not qualified yet to give one, so I think I'll leave it at that. I will say it was simple to do!
Here's a before of the chairs again~
Here they are, all glammed up!
While my husband does not fully appreciate the awesomeness of the "crazy" zebra stripes, I guaranteed him sum teenage gal S gunA lov em! :)
