Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mamas out there…new, expecting and grand! I seem to have them all in my life and I truly hope you enjoyed your day ladies.
This post is getting up a bit late because I didn’t want to spoil my own mother’s present as she is an avid blog reader.
My mom requested a new-to-her chair for her computer desk an eternity ago. I won’t mention the fact that this was meant to be a gift for her last Christmas. Oh, I guess I just mentioned it. Better late than never. She really deserves a new seat to perch herself on after all that she puts up with from me! Let’s just say that she is a workhorse when it comes to completing projects for me, the driver. A volunteer workhorse at that. Thanks Mom!
Anyway, this long forgotten dining room chair made the transformation to funky desk chair with a base coat of ASCP Pure White. The legs and top were dipped in ASCP Arles then it was all clear waxed. Just the Arles was hit with a little dark wax. Have I mentioned how much I love the color Arles lately? I seem to use it on every other project. It is so versatile.
I distressed it in a few random spots allowing some white and natural wood to show through the Arles.
The seat was completely rebuilt from plywood. Then stuffed and recovered with a fun, bright floral fabric. Sorry but there’s no before pic for this one. Use your imagination. Brown chair, no seat.
So tell me, how was your mother’s day?
