Now that I have a grandson able to sit in a children's chair, I thought it was time for me to do some refinishing. Normally I'm a one shade, color within the lines type of gal, but after seeing all the really cool things my friend Shelly does over at Shizzle I decided to step out of my box and try something new. I did all the work, but Shelly talked me through it, giving me what I think are pretty cool results!
Shelly usually uses a wax to finish off her furniture, but since my chair will be outdoors she suggested a satin polyurethane finish. I put it on with this flat sponge from the dollar store. That worked pretty well except for in the cracks, so I found a small artist's brush for them.
although I think it looks even better with an occupant!
If I can do it, anyone can! If you want to see how a professional does it, check out Shelly's work at Shizzle. She is amazing!
