Yeah, I know what you are thinking! Let’s be positive, now….
FYI…This chair is a family heirloom from Rourke’s ancestors. We can’t figure out how far back it goes, but let’s just say it is OLD!!!Using gloves, a mask and KILZ spray, I put on a coat of KILZ on all of the wood surfaces. This is in lieu of sanding. I did this all in the grass, knowing the grass would be mowed soon.I then sprayed a layer of gold spray paint on top of the KILZ and let it dry.I sprayed about 10-12 inches away from the wood, so it would not form drips.I continued spraying several layers, allowing each layer to dry, until I was satisfied with the color.I then took the chair, along with my fabric to our local upholsterer. He then had to basically rebuild the chair and cover it with fabric. I love the new look!!!
It’s going to look great in the new guest room!!!
