Sorry I do not have a before pic of this chair, but it was nothing special. plain wood, kinda dirty.


I painted it white at first, but it looked too plain. Yesterday morning I got bored so I decided to give it a new look. The color is called Key Lime and I am hoping to find a colorful cushion to go on it.

It's sure a PAIN to sand these chairs. I wonder if I can just spray primer on top then use my paint. I would love your advice :-) Posted: 9:47 am on January 3rd
