Decorate My Home, Part 2 – Chair Facelift
Craig and I have become the best of friends.
He finds me the best deals.
And I thank him for that.
And came up with these:
To make them, I sanded all of the previous stain and shine from the wood. Then I headed to Lowe’s and found a color of stain that I wanted. I applied the stain several times and then polished it with polyurethane. (follow instructions on can)
Then I screwed the cushion back on the chair.
The finished product put an immediate smile on my face.
Things I learned?
- Sanding wood takes a LONG time.
- Stain is finicky. But doable.
- Stain is messy.
- There is a lot of stuff out there that looks like junk, but has a lot of potential underneath.
- I impress my husband each time I use a man tool… Haha!
