Round Back Dining Chairs


I would be thrilled to find one of these shapely dining chairs, so imagine my joy at finding a set of four.  Someone did not realize their value and had stored this set outside.  They were in bad shape and had black widow nests in the seat cushions.  I hate spiders, especially black widows, but I was not going to let that get in my way of salvaging these beautiful chairs.  I carefully removed the screws holding the  seat cushions in place and bravely killed any spiders that dared to crawl out.  Who said fixing up furniture was always easy or safe?

Before
After

After removing all the seat cushions, I patched any cracks with wood filler and then painted the chairs with two coats of Old White Chalk Paint.  I distressed the edges and then I painted a wash over the Old White, made by thinning French Linen Chalk Paint with water.


I wanted the chairs to be classic, elegant, and monochromatic.  I went to my favorite local fabric store in Santa Cruz and I spotted this fabric on the remnants table right when I walked through the door. I knew it was the one!  It is a heavy weight upholstery linen with grain sack stripes woven in and lots of texture.  The best part is that, because it was a remnant, I only had to pay $7.99 per yard!  I am sure this beautiful fabric is normally well over $30 per yard.


Next, I called my very talented upholsterer to pick up the chairs and finish the transformation.  She returned the chairs this past weekend and I cannot stop staring at them.

Hello! I am refinishing a farmhouse table and I want to use this technique on my table apron and legs and possibly the chairs too, I haven't decided. These are JUST GORGEOUS! I was looking for chairs like this, but with no luck but I found some that are still pretty cute. Anyways, I was wondering, did you finish this with wax? Was it clear wax only or dark wax too?

Thank you!
Ashley

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's
borh equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you
have hit the nail oon the head. The issue is an issue that not
enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy thwt I
came across this in my hunt for something concerning
this.
