I’m so excited to share my dining room chair makeover.
I am not so excited to tell you this took me 6 months to do. For real. Not because it took that long to paint them, oh no, that took a couple of hours. Its because when you paint for others and for work you kinda sorta put things off when its for yourself. So, I had these chairs a longggg time ago. I’m happy to slowly and surely get things finished up in our house. I made myself finish them for my Christmas home tour, now I need to paint the table and buffet (any colour suggestions?)
I could not commit to fabric/colour so, after painting the chairs in Fat Paint Parchment, I decided to just paint the fabric.
I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Linen for the fabric, only 2 coats (waiting 12 hours between coats) sanded lightly and waxed the fabric, its not super soft, but not too bad. (Even Mr FPM doesn’t mind them) I will change it out for fabric (probably, but it will probably take me another 6 months to decide – I am bad with fabric, it gives me shivers to think of picking it out)
Some ask if it “gives” here’s an example of pliable is after cured.
I’m so happy with the change. They looked so dated before, I love how fresh they look now. I will confess, I am waiting for new chairs, I have my eye on cafe chairs, but until I can save up and find affordable ones, I love these chairs. Loving what I have instead of wishing I had something else. Life’s too short for that right?
What do you think of these? I’d love to know. I love to hear from you!
Thanks for popping in.
