Months and months ago, I found a set of vintage barrel chairs at Faith Farm – my favorite thrift store.
While the fabric on the chairs chairs looked okay, it was crunchy and stained – and I thought too dated. So I took a couple hours and removed the fabric and all 9 million staples.
Then I painted them with Rustoleum White. But not before I tried to use their antique white, but it was way too creamy.
Here they are side by side, in their original color and then in the new white. Well, one coat of it anyway.
And finally, months after I first started this project, I finally finished them. That piping took me a week of upholstery class alone to sew it!
I love how they look now – completely fresh and bright. Now, I just have to find someone else to love them as much as I do! We seem to have a few too many chairs around here. Note to self: stop buying chairs just because they are cool 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
