Library Chairs ReDo and fini!
Hello Sunshines, well I have been painting my fingers to the bone! Literally, my nails are broken down to the quick, they hurt! But I just finished my new consignment chairs! They are wonderful and I am going to try and get them re-upholstered. Now you are probably saying to yourself, wow, re-upholstered? WHY!
Well I actually just love love love the fabric but after trying to clean it and watching several wonderful YouTube videos on how to clean velvet, I found that they were really full of dirt, deep down type. Did you know there are "fabric codes" on your furniture? That is how to determine how to clean it.
Since these are probably from the 1950's they really cannot be cleaned at this point. So I tried, and off they go for a new outfit! :)
These chairs are made by American of Martinsville and they have great bones, are sturdy, and they just needed a little update. I will take new pictures when the upholstery is done. I am so excited with just the white paint. They will quaint up my Library!
Pictures soon of the room! :) Have a great weekend, hugs Kat =^.^=
here is the finished product! I love how they turned out! fini! :)
Ta Da! Kilz and then a nice white from Ace Hardware! one of my favourite places! Ace is the place and really does have everything! :) I really like how they turned out!
