The Final Outcome :)
I dont know how to make this short .... but here's what I posted on our Facebook page about this project -
PAINTED CHAIR and JD Liqour Cabinet - DO NOT ATTEMPT without reading this! First off - I wrote Jack Daniels Legal Team directly and got permission to use their label on this piece as it is a liqour cabinet for us ..... not for resale, but wanted to show you that things ARE possible if you ask and play by the rules. Second - here is the PAINTED CHAIR. I still want to paint the legs white I think ... and maybe add a large damask on the back. It turned out to be quit convincing! Its not hard and crusty, it doesnt come off on your clothes, and I've already washed a few droplets of paint off it ...... and nothing ran ... so there you have it - it IS do-able providing you find the right recipe for the fabric you are using. This was a combination of 4 different liquids and a lot of labour. WHY WOULD YOU PAINT A CHAIR you ask? Well ask yourself this - if you were going to reupholster it, how much would that cost, and what would you do with the old material? Well, here now we saved the old material from being thrown in the dump, and it only cost my time and $25.00 ......... let the questions fly - however, I have a ton of work to do, so wont likely be at the comp much until Monday! CHEERS!
