I love an old chair. Usually of the French variety, but this one has a nice vintage feel, although the colour has to go. I looked into getting it reupholstered but at almost $600, I decided I didn’t like it THAT much. I will have to depend on my own devices for this makeover.

Spray painting the chair two different colours requires a lot of taping and plastic…

I tried sanding and restaining the wood in Espresso, but it was pretty blotchy, so I painted the arms and legs in Aged Grey Chalked Paint and Linen White Chalked paint by Rust-Oleum (The Home Depot). The racing stripe was fun but time consuming. Patience is a virtue I don’t posess when it comes to makeovers.
