Today I will show you my old Victorian style chairs, which undergo a tranformation from Ugly Duckling to the Princess and the Pea.
I really liked the chairs until I painted them again with a dark paint, probably a teak color, which started to dissolve the finish and even now I can take the paint off with my fingernails.
Here is the first chair before I began.
Here it is during the process.
In the meantime, my partner noticed my excitement and decided to buy me a modelling and engraving set. Now even the hard to reach places will be easy as pie.
The second stage will be purchasing matching fabric and upholstering the chair, as well as painting, finding the right trimmings, and here I have to say that this is my next goal for the future.
I'm finding myself a bit short on time for these chairs, especially before the holidays, and since each one requires sanding with sand paper outdoors on account of the dust - and who wants to sit outside for several hours in the cold, at this time of the year?
You can follow my projects in the next few entries and hopefully, this will be one I will finish before the end of this year.
Enjoy your day!
