DIY Painted Fabric: Vintage Barrel ChairSep 05, 2014
Before I begin, I would first off like to give a S/O to Apartment Therapy for featuring another one of my projects. I really appreciate the love!!!! ------------------- I originally purchased this chair about 2 years ago from my local thrift store for only $5. I remember setting it aside because I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do to spruce it up. Now, fast track on to 2 years later when I find the chair buried under a bunch of junk in my basement. How that happened, I really couldn’t tell you. LOL. Nevertheless, I was thrilled to find it. I stared at the chair for a few minutes and tried to think of a way that I could give this vintage chair a makeover WITHOUT spending any money? I am so mad at myself though, because those dark stains were not on the chair when I originally purchased it. I accidentally made those marks myself. I believe it was drops of wood stain that was spilled on the chair. :( »»»»SUBSCRIBE TO MY BLOG«««« [mc4wp_form] Clearly...the ONLY choice for ME was to paint it. A super low-cost alternative to having the entire chair reupholstered. And besides, this gives me a reason to test out this lovely new paint color I just picked up on my latest trip to Home Depot. The paint color is called "Hacienda Tile" by BehrPaint Marquee. Just an FYI, I got my upholstery painting method and/or idea from Kristi at Hyphen Interiors.
