DIY Wood Chair Makeover
About a month ago I was out running errands with the kids. On our way home we found a couple of garage sales and decided to stop. My theory is that it never hurts to look, right? Sometimes we find a great deal and sometimes we just walk away. On this particular day I happened across a solid wood chair. It looks like at one time it matched a dining room set, but it was sitting all alone and marked just $2. I couldn't pass it up. It was the perfect piece for a little makeover. I figured a little sanding and painting would refresh this chair. Since I had no attachment to the chair, there were no matches to the chair, and I got it so cheap, I didn't have any issues giving it a makeover. I cleaned it up and sanded off some of the varnish and smoothness since I wanted to the chair to have a rustic feel. Then I gave it a nice coat of primer and finally I painted it using this new Rustoleum Chalked Ultra Matte Paint in Calypso Blue. Once it was dry I sanded a few areas to make it more rustic. Then I coated it with Rustoleum Chalked Protective Top Coat in Matte Clear to help seal it and it was finished. When I bought it, I thought I might use it for a computer chair, but after I made it over my hubby suggested putting it in our bedroom since it would be a great accent piece in there.
