So back to my project, 4 different chairs for the kitchen table, one paint color and one fabric like I mentioned here. I can go a little crazy in the kitchen that is OK 🙂
I bought an old ugly Burgundy chair, yes it was a very shiny burgundy chair, but I liked its ornate and carved details.
I didn’t sand it, I just used Kiltz Spray Primer ( or Zinsser), then I paint it with “Valspar Aqua Ocean paint”. Then I realized that the ornate top that I fell in love with is loose 🙁
This is what happens when you are so excited and you don’t pay attention to how sturdy is the piece that you are buying. To fix it I used “Elmer’s Wood Filler” and “Gorilla Super Glue”. Lightly sand the wood filler and paint over it.
|After priming it|
|With the wood filler|
The upholstery part was so easy like wrapping a gift, but hey don’t forget to use staple gun instead of scotch tape 🙂
I forgot to take a before picture ( I noticed we all do that in BlogLand), don’t you just hate that especially when the piece you are working on was so UGLY and BURGUNDY, Burgundy can you believe it???
|you can still see the crack but it is no more wobbly|

The chair turned out really nicely. I love the ornate top to the chair. I have a wobbly chair too that is gonna need some gorilla glue!
What a gorgeous chair! I have bought many things in a fit of excitement & then found flaws when I got them home…oh well, a little more work…usually worth it!
Hiya sweetie!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the chair! The color you painted it is beautiful and the detail is fabulous!!!!
Great job! I am also redoing chairs for the kitchen table. I am a new follower.
This is sweet … it will look nice mixed in. My fabric finely came in (after about 4 wks)for my dinning room chairs. I guess I better get started with the painting on my chairs. I can't wait to see your set all set up.
