Spring is FINALLY here!

Today was gorgeous! Lots of sunshine and a bit of warmth - the perfect day to update my newly acquired chairs.

First I sanded my $15 chair then primed it. I was able to get the first coat of my pink paint on - it's called Watermelon. Isn't it cute? Wait until I add the reupholstered seat. I have quite the colour combo/design in store for this update.

In-between priming and painting, I sanded and oiled my $10 chair. I'll tweek the finish tomorrow then focus on the reupholstery.

The sanding and oiling definitely made the wood look better. I got rid of the paint marks, gashes and the drab finish it had before.

I should have the chairs refinished this week. Hopefully I can get the reupholstery done in a jiffy! Then both are good to go.

  2. It's a fun colour, isn't it? I'm going to do something swanky with the upholstery... It'll be loud and proud! :-)
