Don't even think about throwing out those dining chairs you had from your first apartment!
You WILL need them later for something...
Don't fear the refinish!
It is so simple.
First: Wipe down the chair thoroughly.
Next: Get a tarp and head out to the garage to begin sanding. I used a medium grit sand paper.
Then: Wipe down the chair once more to get all of the dust off and cover any parts you don't want to paint with blue tape.
Fun part: Start painting with a foam brush to avoid brush strokes. I used a sample pint from the many I had left over from picking out the wall color for my Little's room, just your basic Sherwin Williams eggshell paint. I did a few coats and let it dry in between applications.
Then: I sanded the edges and crevasses to give it that "shabby chic" look. The chair was a medium stain underneath to begin with so when I sanded, the color popped out perfectly!
Lastly: I applied a coat of furniture wax to give the color a little luster.
Did you spot the super cute oversized ruler?!
I made that too!
