Refinished Wood Chair Painted Blue

Refinished Wood Chair Painted Blue

Contributed by Paige at Faith's Place


I am soooooo excited about my new chair makeover!!!! It's my very FIRST attempt at refinishing a piece of furniture! 

I wanted to start with something cheap and small to see if I could pull it off. I bought this chair at Goodwill for $4!! I figured, it's 4 bucks; if I mess up, I'm only out of $4.

Here it what it looked like when I bought it last week......

I have a little electric mouse sander, so I sanded it first...nothing heavy, just enough to take some of the finish off.  I also took the million staples out of the seat to get the fabric off the original. Easy as pie!

After taking the fabric off, I measured out a new piece and restapled the new fabric to the seat with a staple gun. Again, easy peasy!

Next I spray painted the chair using "Ocean Breeze" blue that I purchased atWal-Mart for $3. I only needed one can.  (I was going for a color I had never used, just to try something different...now I can't wait to use this color on more stuff).

I also spray on some Lacquer to give it a shine!!!

And here is my new sweet, fun, funky chair.....



Again.....the BEFORE...

And, the AFTER.....

I can't wait to get my hands on something else to refinish now!!!!!

I love how the chair turned out!! That color and fabric are so fun!! I am currently working on one for a work space. I also wanted to start with something easy. :)

See, you are super smart for starting small. I found a gigantic monster entertainment center for $15 so I took it home with me.... six months ago. Yep, still not done with that sucker.

Your chair is adorable and happy, love it!
