I never really minded their look although Chris sure did, but now that we've moved I decided they did need an update. They have now found new life!
Behold, I give you Before & After: Dining Room Chair Edition.
|READY FOR SUPPER|
I would not use the same stain+poly combo that I used to turn these black. It was a mess and stunk. I think I would just spray paint next time and save myself a little time and effort. Not to mention I got covered in the stain. My sweet husband ran to Lowe's just to get me the mineral spirits called for to remove stain and that stuff was a miracle! It got the stain off of my body and my hardwood floor after I stained my glider and the stuff splattered all over.
I am really proud of my first "reupholstery" job. It was almost too easy!
