In March, I shared the craft table project (here). Remember how we (Munch and I) painted it white?
I don't think I shared the paint project I finished the same day we painted the craft table. Yep, we were crossing projects off the craft room list.
Mom and I saw this chair outside of a Goodwill on one of our shopping trips. Mom insisted the $6.99 price tag should not prevent me from buying it. Of course, I was expecting a gift from the thrifty gods in the form of a $1 price tag. Not so lucky BUT $7 isn't bad, right?
I saw beyond the scraped wood, the minor damage and the dents...
... and we got it. I had it for a year... sitting in the craft room... incomplete and waiting to be made pretty.
First things first, I unscrewed the seat and back from the frame. I placed the screws in a paper shopping bag for painting. I sprayed them gold and used the same paint (it eliminated the need for sanding furniture) to finish the chair. It took 4 coats of white paint to get the coverage I wanted. It only took a few quick sprays of gold spray paint on the screws.
I carefully put the chair back together (didn't want to chip my freshly painted gold screws!!) and I enjoyed the beauty!
I'm debating whether I should paint the base gold too but, at the time, it didn't bother me.
For now, I'm celebrating a flashback and frugal Friday in one. Consider it a BOGO deal :)
Happy frugal, flashback and FABULOUS Friday!
