Chair Transformation and Wow Us Wednesdays #3

2.23.2011

It's that time of week again for Wow Us Wednesdays. I am so glad you are here and sure hope you will join us. You can share just about anything here. If you want to share a diy project, craft, recipe, home tour, whatever, just link it up.


I have finally finished this chair. I picked this up at an antique mall several months ago for $30. Since I have made over this guest room I need to lighten up this little chair.


     Much better, don't you think? Let's take a closer look.

















    Just white paint by Behr called cotton knit and some sanding. You would think that it would be an 
     easy project, but chairs just aren't that easy to paint. Anyway, it is done and it looks so much better.
 You can see the rest of the guest room here
Now it is time for you to link up all your wonderful wow posts.  

Guidelines:

1. Be sure and link up your intended post URL and not your whole blog.
2. Please add a link back to the party in your post so others can find the party and join in.
3. Take time to visit some of the links. You may find a wonderful new blog to follow.
4. No advertising please
If you are new here I hope you will become a follower.

I have a new giveaway going on HERE. Be sure and check it out.

Also Mr. Savvy and I are celebrating our 36th anniversary today!
Yes, I was two when I got married. No, just kidding. I was 19 though.
Happy Anniversary to my best friend!

  62. Kim, the transformatiion of the chair is gorgeous! Because of the dark finish on the original I might have walked past it, although the style is really pretty. With your painters eye, a really beautiful piece was created for next to nothing!

  73. Your chair looks wonderful -- and I am so happy to see people starting to use Americana again. For so long, if it wasn't French, nobody wanted it. You do a great job with your painted finishes.
