Well, I didn’t know that this project would be the start of a long journey. I did not take any pictures of them before as I had no intentions of starting this blog.
I want to start by thanking Kate at Centsational girl blog because she is my inspiration when it comes to refinishing furniture.
I started looking into this when we started looking for two additional seatings for the dining table. We had 6 chairs but our dining table can fit 8 easily. My husband suggested Craiglist. It was my first time looking at used furniture on the net. After a short search, I found 2 chairs in similar shape to our chairs. They were brown with dark navy fabrics. My husband started laughing when I told him that I wanted to buy them.
After sanding (my husband’s job as I hate sanding,) I spray painted with “Rustoleum Heirloom White” to match my existing dining chairs. Some more sanding I matched the antique effect of my other chairs. Finally, upholstery (step-by-step guide will follow in later posts.)
The initial choice of fabric:
Then I changed my mind because I felt that I need something that is more elegant and formal
Here is a picture of my upholstered DIY chair next to the original chairs that came with the dining set.
Actually, I love my DIY chair better than the original ones. It is comfy, elegant, and cheaper.
