One more post about a yard sale find. (I really never go yard-saleing – I just got lucky, ‘happening-to-pass-by’ two garage sales in my own neighborhood this summer.) So at a yard sale down the street from my house I spotted these 2 chairs. $10 for the pair. They looked a little bedraggled but full of potential.
I used white, gloss Krylon to paint the chair. Not fancy. I probably need to add a coat of some kind of finisher, glaze or something and I’m undecided about whether or not to distress it a little bit. I’ll keep mulling it over for a few more weeks before I tackle the other chair as well. It’s still a work in progress.
Here’s the nice ‘before and after’ shot. My china-hutch re-do is still probably my favorite furniture makeover, but the chair is definitely a close second. Cost-wise per chair: Chair = $5, primer = $3.50, paint = $3.50, fabric = $2.25 for a total of $14.25. I think I can handle doing the other one.
