Ugly Chair Makeover

July 9, 2018

What do you do with an old chair?  I bought a wooden chair years and years (eons, really) ago, thinking I would refinish it.  By "refinish" I mean strip the old varnish and stain off, and then redo them.  After all, that's all I knew that could be done with a wooden chair.

We have several pieces of antique furniture in our home that we have refinished in this manner, and they are gorgeous.  I really do love the look of antique furniture.  But this chair?  Not so much.  I knew it need a cuteness overhaul!


I cleaned it, coated it in Dixie Belle chalk mineral paint in the caviar color, and then polka-dotted it happily.


 I explain more about the process in my video, PLUS there is a little surprise giggle to start it off!   Come see for yourself:



 Thank you for watching.  This "new" chair is my craft chair now, and I do love it so!
