MASTER BEDROOM CHAIR REFINISHING

I must admit, refinishing and reupholstering this chair really has me on edge...


But, you guys said that I can do it so I guess I'll give it a shot! I started by removing the fabric and the old foam


Which left me with this



I usually use my electric sander, but since this was a small job, I used my sanding pads/blocks


***SIDE NOTE***
When you are sanding a piece, first figure out what you're sanding it for. There are different grit sand papers that you use for different purposes.

In this case, I used medium grit to "rough up" the surface of the chair prior to priming it. After the primer dried, I went back and used a fine grit sand paper to smooth out the finish of the primer. This helps you achieve a smooth even finish.

After I finished sanding the chair, I wiped it down with a some what damp cloth to remove all of the dust before I applied my spray paint


Then I painted the frame using Rustoleums 'Heirloom White' spray paint

After this step, you may want to check out you paint job to make sure that you don't have any 'runs' or drips of paint. If so, sand again (lightly) with your medium grit sand paper followed by your fine grit sand paper and paint again.

After the paint dried, I used a spray on clear top coat that you can find in the spray paint section at your home improvement store.

Now that I've finished the frame, I'm going to try and figure out the reupholstering part. But, first I need to find the fabric!

Need to slip cover a chair? Check out Janell's blog and watch as she make slip covers for a pair of really nice vintage chairs for her son's 'Big Boy Room'!

Sorry for the small pictures guys! I took them with my new cell phone and can't figure out what to do to make them larger. I'll try to update them when I can...

Have a great day!

Great progress! I get the "has me on edge..." part, do you want to switch projects?!

With such a small area you can consider so many types of fabrics!! Can't wait to see what you pick!

It's looking great already! Reupholstering is not hard, especially a seat bottom. The biggest hurdle I find with it is time. I am a world class procrastinator.

Can't wait to see your finished results!

I love this chair! The shape is wonderful. I guess sometimes you just have to dive in and give it a go. Can't wait to see the after.

Just questioning if eBay enables you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on the net? Do you know if there are any restrictions depending on what country you are in?

My parents have just called me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to a concert as they wont have the ability to make it because of another family event.

Apart from asking pals etc, i thought ebay would be a good place to market them.

But whats ebay's policy on selling tickets? Ive heard alot about it within the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is within this coming month

Thanks in advance for the advice.
