CHIPPY CHAIR MAKEOVER

My chippy blue chair has appeared in previous posts and a lot of you really liked it.
I really like it too, but here's the thing - it looks better in pictures than in real life.  
The blue paint is very bright and shiny and very gloppy in some places.


So don't yell at me, but I decided to give it a makeover.

~ so here is the new look ~ ta da ~


2 coats of ASCP in old white and lots of sanding.


I added a simple design to the top of the chair
and sanded the heck out of it  : )


The curvy bottom rung received a little accent color too.


I'm pretty happy with the new look.


Do you like it?
Or did I ruin a perfectly good chippy old chair?


You can be honest ~ I can take it ~ I think!

Either way, I do appreciate your visit!
Happy Friday!!

  7. I think it looks nice, JoAnne. Fresh and ready for the Holidays. I think things look a lot different in real life than they do in photographs sometimes. I like it a lot repainted. xo Diana

  9. Hey that's your chair, your home, you should be able to do what your heart desires. Obviously you needed a change and it got one heck of a great one, she looks very cute with her new color and decoration. Good for you. We love it no matter what, you did great job, bet there was a great deal of sanding. Is your arm sore or did you use a sander?
    Even when I use a sander I still have sore arm, can't hold it very long, have to rest my old arm. I actually like chippy look which is unusual for me but love the new look too. Also love cupboard door above chair. Perfect combo. Happy weekend and season

  10. I love the newly painted and distressed chair! Too chippy looks great in pictures, but when you have to pick up flakes of paint every day, it's just time to repaint!

      Shopping for bosses could seem troublesome initially, however not if you go this route. obtaining a pleasant govt chair for your boss could be a good way to earn brownie points at the workplace and show your boss they are appreciated at an equivalent time. Chairs from this vogue, just like the 811-LX assaulter Chair by OFM, usually feature soft animal skin upholsteries to inclose plush comfort. the most effective half is that these chairs doubtless will not value you any further than alternative nice boss gifts, like a present certificate to a flowery eating place for 2, or a preferred sporting event. Most nice govt chairs supply wonderful style and luxury for fewer than $200.
