I am estatic about two chairs I got at Goodwill! We are finishing our guest house above the detached garage, and I need furniture to fill it. Of course, I do not have the money to buy furniture, but I did have $30.00 to buy TWO chairs at Goodwill! (That’s right, $15.00 each!)
Now these chairs had been sitting there for a while because no one could see their amazing potential. But when I laid my eyes on them, it was love at first sight! I have been browsing some decorating blogs lately, and I saw on one blog where a lady had painted fabric on a seat of a chair. Yes, with regular old paint! It looked awesome, and that was my first thought with these chairs. The brown wood on one chair had faded more than the other, so I immediately knew that I would paint them black. And if you know me, I will take a can of black spray paint to just about anything that will sit still long enough!
So here’s what it looked like…
I had to fill all the staple holes with wood filler, wait for it to dry, then paint. The black paint on the wood filler looked different from the paint on the real wood, so I had to go back and spray some primer over the wood filler. Then I spray painted the primer black, and it looked great!
Doesn’t the back of the chair look good? I love that design.
