A Southwestern Chair Makeover


Come see the incredible transformation Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations did on this roadside find! She took it from dark and dreary and made it a southern beauty with Bliss, antiquing wax, and some new upholstery.
This curbside chair was missing arms that were removed, with screws left behind.
It was also a little distressed and it was a dark and dreary looking piece.
After removing the screws, there were two that couldn't be taken out easily. So I used a grinder to take them down to the wood surface and then sanded the entire chair in preparation for painting.
I used "Bliss". It's a beautiful turquoise color. I applied one thin coat, so that some of the wood grain could still show through most areas.
While the paint was drying, I reupholstered the seat with new foam and fabric.
After the chair dried, I used Dark Antiquing Wax to bring out all of the crevices and details.
