Today is my Grandmother's funeral, and my Husband's officiating it. So it will be quite a day today. Therefore I've scheduled this post, it's the post I did over at TYPE A this last Monday.
Today I want to show you a chair that I picked up at a local thrift shop for $7.00
I was totally drawn in by the floral design on top....so pretty! But, the chair could use a makeover. So that's what it got!
First things first-disassemble the chair.
Lookin' better already.
Now it's got a fresh coat of Rustoleum's Heirloom White....stinkin' LOVE this color!
Then I applied some ralph lauren faux technique glaze (so glad I got this stuff before they discontinued it!)
I got it into all the little crevices and let it sit for a minute before wiping it off with a wet rag.
I stapled the flat sides first, and then gathered the corners by pinching them, then pressing them down and stapling.
And then the chair appears to be finished!
Only, I feel like it's missing something! So after some thought, I came up with something-a monogram of our last name's letter. So I busted out my cricut (a.k.a. My PRECIOUS) and whipped up a "G" monogram.
I cut my "G" out on contact paper that I got at the $0.99 cents store, and stuck it to the chair seat.
After dabbing with paint and letting it dry, I CAAARRREFULLLY pulled back the stencil and voila! A beautiful "G" monogram, which I think provided the PERFECT touch to my chair!
So there you have it! From Shabby to Chic, and PERFECT for our bathroom vanity!
Hope you all have a wonderful Fourth Of July weekend!
