so...remember the desk chairs I ruined?
I never did toss them to the curb. I love the shield back, and just couldn't bring myself to throw them away. So they sat in the garage for a while. Last week we cleaned out the garage, trying to tidy up, and the Mister walked them out to the curb. No!!! No! Bring them back!! I will fix them!
I sat down with a scrub sponge with some dish soap and water, and gave the chairs a good scrubbing. The dried Citrustrip came right off. I let them dry in the sun for a day, then sanded them again to smooth out the paint surface.
I spray painted them with a few coats of Krylon Leather Brown. I think this will be my last spray paint project for a while, seeing as I paint outdoors and temps have been hovering in the fifties lately.
I was shopping at Target and liked this shower curtain.
It was a thick material, went with the curtains, had a nice graphic print...so I used it to recover the seat cushions.
And here they are:
I like the shield backs much better than the mission chairs I was using at the desk.
I also splurged and bought new hardware for the cabinet under the desk:
The mission chairs are currently living on the other side of the living room...but I have a feeling that I will move them back into the turret. I think the one looks great under the mirror, but its too close to the craft closet. The other one by the tv...well...eh.
