Spring Green Cottage Chairs
March 25, 2010
Last week, I picked up a pair of dusty chairs at a thrift store. I loved the classic cottage shape and the cheap price, but the finish was so grungy. I brought them home and sanded them down to the raw wood, removing all the dirt and grime. Then I gave them a fresh coat of spring green paint !
Here they are Before . . .
. . . and After
All it took was half an hour of sanding and and an hour of painting to give them a fresh new look with some paint and a little distressing !
The chairs were covered in grime when I found them. Ewww.
Nothing that can’t be solved with some coarse sandpaper . . .
A fresh coat of paint from my stash – this is Dutch Boy #582-03
A little distressing along the edges with more sandpaper . . .
And that’s it ! I plan to give them a coat of Polycrylic this weekend.
I love the casual cottage look and the distressed edges !
I simply never get tired of spring green and white.
Isn’t the power of paint magically delicious ?
Welcome Spring !
