Bentwood Chair revived
I have a pair of bentwood chairs hidden away in the spare room so I decided that they could do with a new lease of life and proceeded to paint one of them to see how it would look in my kitchen.
Below and right is the chair before I started the transformation:
Firstly I painted the chair in a pale cream shade which actually looked white so I decided to paint over it in a shade called "Soft Truffle" by Dulux Paints. This colour I was much happier with and proceeded with a second coat. Once the paint was dry I sanded the chair back randomly to give it a worn appearance with some of the original wood shade coming through. It matches nicely with mycream metal kitchen table and chairs.
I think I may have to paint the second chair to match now and add some seat pads as a finishing touch.
