Refurbished antique chair

28 Jan

As you all know I LOVE turning trash-to-treasure.  With my hectic schedule as of late I haven’t had much time to work on my side projects.  However, love it or hate it we were hit with 17″ of snow the other day and I was snowed in which allowed me some much needed ‘free’ time.

This beauty has been sitting in my basement for over a year…I know YIKES!  My friends found her in someone’s trash and thought of me.  How sweet 😉  I’ve really fought hard for her.  I can’t tell you how many times my (loving) husband threatened to sneak her into the trash.  I had a vision and I wasn’t going to let it pass.

I removed a few layers of fabric from the seat and lightly sanded the wooden frame.  After two coats of paint I roughed up the edges to give it a worn look.  To make it more ‘authentically’ old I used an antique glaze from Lowes which gave it a dirty brownish tint.  Finally I sealed it with a coat of satin poly and recovered the seat with some linen fabric and upholstery nails.

So without further ado I give you: Rick Allen.  Yeah, incase you didn’t notice my chair only has one arm.  I chose to leave it there in part because I think it is interesting and in part because I want to call her Rick Allen (the drummer from Def Leppard).

If you are in the Philadelphia area and you would like to purchase this chair please email amanda@sunflowercreationsonline.com
