Those grubby child size chairs

P1130156Remember these two chairs??  Unfinished frames, but pretty ‘grimey’ from a LOT of use.

And the SEATS were really scratched and marked up!  And made of some weird composite material.  Looked like dry erase board stuff on top of particle board, so SANDING to prep for painting was out, because it would probably do more harm then help.  THIS is when it’s preferable to PRIME instead of sand.

P1150001So I sanded the unfinished wood parts to get rid of the grime, and gave the seats TWO good coats of KILZ primer before painting.

I distressed the edges of the chairs (but NOT the seat).  The headrest was just the right size to add a little stenciled word to.

These sold before I even got them into my booth at Stars.  Had a customer looking for items in my booth, and I wasn’t going to have room to bring everything from my car.  Took her to my car to show them to her and she wanted them.  So I took them to the front desk to add to her pile of purchases.
