This little guy was seriously beat up and was unfortunately covered in lots of nicks and scrapes. It also had a yucky, shiny varnish all over it’s wood frame.
The cushion wasn’t much better. The fabric was old, faded, outdated and had a purple satin underside? Not a good look for 2014…
Whenever either one of us has painted furniture, we’ve always taken the safe route. Sanding, priming, and latex paint. But this time we were determined to try something new. We’ve heard wonderful things about both milk paint and chalk paint, so we went to a local shop determined to find one of those two paints.
Stir, stir, stir and we were in business! We put three light coats onto the wood with a bristle brush, let it dry overnight, and bam this chair was looking nice and bright white!
