Windsor Chair Renovation

 

Windsor Chair Renovation

 

If you follow me on Instagram (hannahyoungandcrafty), then you know I got this chair at a garage sale for a whopping $2. Did I really have any need for this chair? Ummm, no. There was no way I could pass up a $2 chair though!

She started off green. I actually really liked the green but I didn’t have anywhere to put it. I gave her a light sanding.

And then I painted, and painted, and painted. And then I painted some more. This sucker was a beast to paint. All of those spindles were time consuming and then I had to worry about drips. It took THREE coats of paint.

Of course I couldn’t leave well enough alone. I love all things that look old. So I gave her a good sanding.

I decided the perfect spot for her would be out bedroom. There was this awkward little space that was just screaming for a chair.

Now I need to whip up a cute pillow to put on her.

And yes, I know that my curtains are to short by a few inches.
