Thrift Store Chair Makeover

A week or so ago I discussed thrift stores and how even though they have gotten pricey, I still can and do find bargains,

like this $7 chair (I also got the mirror on it for $4). This was most likely originally from Pottery Barn or Pier 1 and had a slick, fakey, paint finish on it.

It has great bones and lines, but I knew with a little paint it could be a real beauty. In comes Azure, a new, delicious paint color from Fusion Mineral Paint.

One, smooth, lovely, fast-drying coat later and that was all this thrifted chair needed to spruce it up.

I distressed it lightly with 120 grit sandpaper.  No clear coat finish is needed, this paint has a built in finish!

I haven't decided if this chair is a keeper or a seller, but for now she is sitting here--a happy pop of color!

  1. Love it! What a great chair and great colour!

  2. It is a keeper. You selected a beautiful color.

  3. Love the 'shabby chic' finish you gave the chair! Beautiful color! :)
