office chair for the kitchen

Remember this chair from my thrifty treasures back in May? I thought it would be the perfect computer chair for the kitchen, with a little facelift.



My assistants:
1. Liquid sander/deglosserjuly 2011 005 12. then spray paint primer
july 2011 004
3. finish up with a few light coats of spray paint ( Eden from Rustoleum @ Home Depot )
4. take the seat off and re-cover with a staple gun. {fabric is from Fabric.com~ it’s called Premier Prints ZigZag Village Blue/Natural}
5. screw the seat back on to the chairjuly 2011 010 1
and there you go! a fresh, sassy chair to do my blogging in :)

It can’t be August already~Rabbit!

    Hello Natalie,
    I would use a traditional sander if it will be used a lot. Use a fine grain sandpaper and you won't take too much off. You could try the liquid sander if it has a lot of nooks and crannies that are hard to reach, but otherwise I would go the traditional sanding route, just because it will be more durable. You can find the liquid sandpaper at Lowes, Home Depot, or my Walmart has it. Good luck!

  2. Great fresh color, Melissa!  I love the back to this chair! I felt like July just flew by; I can't believe it's August.  Why does it always seem that the Summer months go quicker than the Winter months? : )

  7. I love your sassy little chair!  Isn't she smashing in that color green?  I don't think I've seen that color spray paint--clearly I haven't been perusing the spray paint often enough! 

    Are you back home?  I've missed you!  I hope the whole road trip was wonderful.  Your ideas for keeping the kids occupied in the van were great!

    totally love it.  word to the wise:  (from someone who has as many kids as you do and a passion for white and blue upholstery fabric) RUN, don't walk, to Joann's and get yourself some clear matte vinyl, and cover that sucker immediately.  Unless you plan to re-cover it every two months.  I LOVE your ideas and style, as usual!  another score!

    I am starting a painting project.  This is the first time I am painting a piece of furniture (buffet)  that isn't already painted and it is a real wood veneer.  I am nervous about taking off too much of the wood with traditional sanding.  How do you like the liquid sander?  Would it be appropriate for this type of furniture? I've never even seen it!  Thanks for any tips or advice.
