So I'm sharing this process with my blog friends!! So far I have sanded it down, primered and have started the painting process. I'm not sure how it's going to turn out but I'm just kind of thinking it up as I go. I really love the colors red/black and white together so I figured that those would be the base of my colors. I also want to add stenciling and after it's all done I will put a coat of Polyurethane for shine. I'm going to sew a chair pad for it too but haven't found a fabric that I love yet.. I'm still looking.. It doesn't look like much yet but you will get updates as I go. Here are pictures of the process thus far.....
The Sanding Process was slow going, took about a day to finish it all.
I used the grey primer because I was going to use such dark colors
This was the first day of painting. The Red ended up taking 3 coats but the black I only had to paint twice.
This is what the chair looks like after the paint has dried. I still need to paint the foot spindles and I'm not sure that I like the white under the seat. I might re-paint that part with black but otherwise I think it looks good so far. I'm going to start stenciling after the paint dries. More to come........................
What a fun project you are into doing. I like the white under the seat and I think the rungs should be white too. I can't wait to see it all done with the stencils on it. So far it's looking very 40's or 50's inspired. Just need some black and white checks on it; LOL!!!ReplyDelete
I like this very much!!!ReplyDelete
Claudine, This is wonderful facelift and such a fantastic finished piece. I have been wanting to try something like this and just need to find the right chair. Thank you for the fabulous inspiration.ReplyDelete
