Paint is a small miracle waiting to happen, one coat makes it cleaner, two coats give it personality and three coats do the trick for a full update to old furniture.
Here’s an old folding wood chair that my dad brought home from his travels. When I first saw it I contemplated staining it back to its original luster but then …
Painting this chair gave it a totally different character. Instead of looking traditional the chair took on a whole new life. Once again I used my new favorite color, Benjamin Moore “bahama blue”… I can even imagine sitting under a palm tree on a tropical Island.
An then the spirit moved me to sew a custom cushion…
With or without the cushion this chair is one comfortable piece of furniture that I would not do without.
Instant furniture update, paint it!
