A couple of chairs came into my possession, but they were a color I do not care for. They had old lady written all over them, and since I really don't want to even teeter on 'old lady', I couldn't leave them alone.
Well, that and I'm Scatty... someone who can't leave anything alone anyway.
These are the chairs.
They had strange rails between the legs, that looked out of place to me, and since one of them was a bit on the broken side, I removed the rail from each of them... This meant I had to fill in the holes left behind.
So I started by taping off the legs so I could paint them white.
Then I took them outside, cut the right size holes in an old sheet, and taped the sheet on to protect the fabric from any overspray. I decided to make the legs white! This is after one coat...
So then I got this:
So, my plan...
I watered down orange paint, and used it like a stain on these velour wing backs.
Using a very stiff and artificial paint brush. I watered down paint to the color I preferred, and brushed it on. Here I made a splotch of wet paint so you could see how it was applied.
I hope I haven't left you saying: "but... but..." with questions. If I have, let me know.
I'm RATHER pleased with them. :)
