Before and After : Renewed Chair

705 Views
Hello.This is my first post and my first DIY. I'm sorry for my english and for eventual naivety about photos and text. I'm thrilled about my little work :)
Time: 3 Days Difficulty: Medium
Before. Old and ugly chair.
Meanwhile...two coats of primer (with brush)
After. Two coats of Pastel Green (RAL 6019), one with brush and the last with electric sprayer gun.
The seat is covered with an "old/large/heavy/never used" tablecloth. :)

    Really nice! I love that color, and it was smart to use the old tablecloth. Very few people seem to use them for their intended purpose these days, so it's nice to have a good way to upcycle them.

    Wow- What a nice project for a beginner!Did you already have the chair? Or did you buy it?The mint green is such a pretty color, and I'm so glad you mentioned using table clothes to 'upholster' the chair,I'd only done that on an outside chair, with a picnic table cloth.:)

      Thank you @Polly Zieper ... I have four of these chairs in my dining room, but I'm "revolutionizing" all things in my apartment and I started with the boring chairs!!! :)

    Your English is fine!(I'm a teacher:) and was it difficult to take the seat off?

      @Polly Zieper :D No, the seat has two screws in the inferior part, for the "upholstery" I used the staple gun...

    WOW! I did not even see the great lines of this chair until you redid it! BEAUTIFUL! Your English is a 100% compared to my Italian! Welcome to the world of "PROJECTS"! You are not a true HOMETALKER!

      @Jeanette S actually, it's a very common typo! More than likely, no one besides me saw it. But just in case... ;-) hope your hands feel better!
