Hi again! I've been doing some shopping at my local thrift store this week. Every Tuesday they have 30% off furniture. The truck had just pulled up when I was heading out the door. They were unloading a recent pick-up and these chairs caught my eye!
Aren't they darling? They were $4.99 each, after the discount, I paid $7.57 for both!
They are very shabby, lots of chips and cracks in the paint.
A good scrubbing with Krud Kutter and this chair will look a lot better.
I may add more shabbiness by sanding and distressing. I'm thinking one will go on the porch (isn't she cute sitting there?) and the other stripped and repainted.
This was my first time to use Citristrip...
after about 30-45 minutes, it was ready for clean-up!
This stuff works great, however, I think I prefer flat surfaces when stripping old paint.
So many curves and crevices on this antique!
Back in the day, this chair wore many colors.
I discovered yellow, turquoise, green, blue and black!
I'll be back soon to show you my progress.
I have a feeling this one's going to take awhile!
Have a great weekend!
