I went to 3 garage sales this morning and came back with a loot!
Don’t worry, I have elaborate plans for all these items.
Lets start with those brown and green chairs, shall we?
A closer look…
BUT they were only $3.00 each! My plan was to redo them and sell them on Craig’s List. Here’s how the story goes…
The process started with a major sanding down. There was lots of peeling paint coming off so I made them nice and smooth. They also were a little unstable so I tightened the screws and glued together some of the joints.
I’m lovin the Krylon spray primer.
While the primer was drying, I went to work on those seats. I was very indecisive about the fabric. After verbally deliberating for a while, Austin’s expert decorating advice to me was, “Do something Springy… that’s what people are wanting right now.”
So I went with some of the flowery fabric that I picked up for $.50 at one of the sales and stapled it on. It’s kinda like wrapping a present- just a little noisier.
I then put on a coat of white paint and waited another 30 minutes for it to dry.
I sanded down the edges to give it a vintage-country look.
Sprayed on some top coat to give it some protection and shine
How cute are these!Like I said, I intended to sell them on Craig’s list a make a little profit but I have a problem…
I like them too much!
They go great in a little spot in our reading room.
I don’t think these chairs are going anywhere for a while.
