metalic vinyl chair

I’m excited to share this awesome chair makeover from Karen because it comes with an amazing tip, one that I certainly plan to use in the future, and I think all renovators will appreciate it. Karen loves to give old furniture a new life, and when this chair came into her possession, she gave it incredible amounts of love and care. Karen stripped and cleaned the piece tirelessly, and after refinishing the wood with a coat of antique white and a brown overglaze, she gave the old leather an amazing new look with — wait for it — silver spray paint!

That’s the magic tip, folks. According to Karen, if you work slowly and apply about 20 coats, one light coat at a time, the paint will not chip, run or rub off, and the metallic finish will actually wear in beautifully. You can read more about the project here. I was so excited to hear this, and I can’t wait to try it out on something. Beautiful job, and thanks for the tip, Karen!
