Upcycling A Chair

As part of my project is Upcycling I have bought a chair to upcycle. It will be done in Shabby Chic Style of course!

Bargain... Only £5!

Some Close Ups! Yep... it was a bit unloved. :(



I am going to use my pink gingham fabric with my design printed in darker pink. 

Step by Step:

Firstly I had to remove all that varnish and black paint. I used Paint & Varnish Remover and a Stripper Tool! It was a messy job!
I washed down the chair with a very damp cloth and once dry I sanded away, making a nice and smooth surface for the paint. 
2 coats of Duck Egg Blue Acrylic Wood & Metal Paint.
2 coats of White Emulsion Paint.
