After doing this fun and very interesting project over the weekend. I am so happy and so pleased with how this turned out.
I am beyond giddy to show y'all these chairs & bench! Okay, here you go...
But let me show you how these chairs used to look like.
Now you know why I am so happy how these chairs look now? :)
It just look like brand new furnitures! happy dance, woot!woot!
I we really love it!
Removing the seats from the chairs & the bench were pretty easy but taking off those staples was so challenging.
So I've got myself ready for that...
And then got myself into staple-removing process.
Tip: If you're going to do this yourself, try using a flat screw driver then lift one side of the staple and then pull the rest of the staple using a pliers.
Then the rest of the process will be easy, it is just time-consuming.
I removed my proper protection when the re-upholstering started.If you noticed I changed the lining underneath using a fleece because the old material was way too torn out and ugly to use.
And here's the interesting part, we spray-painted the chairs with chocolate brown on Saturday and there was no forecast to rain.
So while The Mr. and I were watching a good movie while drying the chairs - it rained...wow!
Good thing he heard the rain and we ran outside to bring in the chairs but that was after the chairs were rained on! lol!
Hilarious that I still has to remember that I am a blogger and so I was able to manage to take photos before wiping the rain off!
It did not ruined the first coat of paint, it was dry enough.
The next day, we did the second coat and even with no rain forecast - we made sure that we can hear if it will suddenly rain. So glad it didn't anymore.
I love how these chairs turned out...really...makes me want to reupholster more...
I'm not gonna lie, it was a lot of work than I thought it would but I would definitely do it again.
There is a certain joy and satisfaction that this project gives me. Makes me really feel giddy every time I see it and sit on it.
I hope you like it!
side note: i just noticed while i was writing this post that it seems like i have a thing for this kind of pattern, look at my diy wallpaper... :)
