Another chair has been completed for my dining room set! This was another that originally had wood seat and the rest was white. After my experience with the last one, I thought I would try a different route so that I wouldn't have the white showing through when I distressed.
So I spray painted the white parts with brown primer. Primer, thinking that it would hold up better to a little sanding. Then, once again (since I am a lazy painter) spray painting the whole thing black, followed by a bit of sanding.
The overall look, not bad.
upon closer inspection...
Not only did I do a poor job of spraying...
Yep, the white still showed through! ARGH!
I even tried a little stain on the white spots, but the white paint didn't want to take the stain.
So, spray it again, or do something a little different?
How about a little red milk paint?
These were taken after one + a bit more coats of milk paint.
And then another coat, some sanding, some more messing with paint after the white showed through again. Still not thrilled...
So, a little dark wax...(and yes, I realize that I am using a lot of dot, dot, dot)
I am actually quite happy with the finished result!
Sorry I didn't get more up close shots. I tried, but they didn't turn out so great. You'll just have to come by the house and see it in person!
So now, I have 6 black chairs and one red! One more to go to have a complete 8!
