I've done a lot of posts about my office (that I never use) and have received a lot of compliments on my green chair. It was incredibly easy to do, so I thought I'd share it with you in case you want to try it!
I got the chair for free from my sister-in-law. She had used it in her old house and no longer needed it.
Nothing wrong with it, just not very pretty to look at. I started by popping the wheels off so I could give them a good cleaning. I removed the seat and legs from the metal so I could give them a good sanding. Then I cleaned the metal real good. I don't have any photos because I did this in the pre-blogging days.
After the wood was sanded down and cleaned I sprayed it with two cans of Krylon's Ivy Leaf. The metal portion got sprayed with a metal-safe dark brown spray paint (I can't remember the color).
Once it was completely dry I distressed it and wiped on Minwax dark walnut stain. Here she is all done!
I always have issues with the lighting in my office. The color is much more warm in person.
I hope you all are enjoying your 4th of July weekend!

Great Job! I guess the camera light bouncing off of the purple made it look more brown than green but I can see the green in the last picture and I love it. Such fun colors for an office space. ;0)ReplyDelete
