At an estate sale, recently, I came across this lone chair with a rose carved top.
The soiled seat cushion was duck taped to the chair. I suppose that is one way to attach a seat cushion.
I cut new, thicker foam for the seat cusion and reupholstered it with burlap.
After painting the chair, I sanded the entire surface to make it completely smooth and then I applied clear wax for a creamy finish.
As a finishing touch I applied Antique Gold Rub 'N Buff to all the edges of the chair and the carved floral design. I have always really liked the look of gold paired with aqua.
I also picked up this vintage mirror at the same estate sale. Since I had a little of the paint mixture left, I decided to paint the old mirror the same.
The mirror had beautiful detailing, but it had a lot of chips and cracks. I just filled them with wood filler before painting.
After painting, I sanded, distressed and waxed. Then, I applied Gold Rub 'N Buff on the ornate, raised designs and edges of the mirror.
