I purchased a table, 2 extensions & FIVE chairs at the Salvation Army for $60! The set was suppose to come with FOUR chairs but when I went to pick it up, another chair mysteriously appeared. It gives me a little comfort knowing if I totally mess it up, I still have four chairs.
I’ve decided that I’m going to work on refinishing them this weekend. Although I like the vintage charm, they smell like they’ve been in a smoky bar, so I’m hoping that will go away after some stain kill, new paint & new fabric.
I’m hoping to create a time worn, vintage look with “chippy paint” I know this look isn’t for everyone but, it fits well in our house.
I follow a blog called Miss Mustard Seed. She is so talented and inspirational. She shared a detailed tutorial of a chair makeover here that you have to SEE to believe. Because I’m kind of a “newbie” at this, I’m not expecting the same results but it does give me COURAGE to try!
