A Southwestern Chair Makeover {guest post}

Come see the incredible transformation Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations did on this roadside fine! 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.
