Thrift Store Chair - First Attempt at Refinishing
This is my first attempt at refinishing furniture. Now that it's done, I'm addicted to it and have been given so many other pieces to finish. Can't wait to get started.
Got this chair for $5 at the thrift store. It was really sturdy but the finish was sticky and dirty and the cushion was crunchy
So I stripped the chair. Sanded it down. Painted it a glossy white. Added a new cushion. The black stripes are actually satin ribbon since I don't feel I have a steady enough hand to paint them. And then finally I finished up by painting the detailed flower at the top. And now I'm addicted to finishing furniture.
