I found a thrifted chair for $10 awhile ago. Today I am happily sharing my Thrifted Chair Makeover Using Chalk Paint and Gold Wax.
As soon as I spotted this lovely chair, I knew I needed it. I have been wanting a new computer chair that is more my style.
The one I have now is a pretty common country style chair. Not me. I was fine with it. THEN, I saw this and put it in my cart.
It already looks like a completely different chair. While the paint was still almost dry, I used a 60 grit sand paper rubbing some “worn” spots into the wood.
Once the paint was dry, I rubbed in gold wax, also from Country Chic. I was excited to see specks of gold with the cherry blossom color for a metallic finish.
This is showing you how much I rubbed in. I really wanted a subtle metallic look for this chair.
This isn’t the best coloring and it was taken directly in the sun. I did this so you can see the sparkly, metallic look I was hoping for. Oh, wow! Love the look.
After the wax had been rubbed in and left to absorb into the paint, I made a new seat cover. Love me some paisley, don’t you?
I am super pleased with my Thrifted Chair Makeover Using Chalk Paint and Gold Wax. The touch of slight metallic finish melts my heart. She looks so happy in our home, now. As a matter of fact, I am sitting on my “new” chair as I write this post.
