MSU Workshop Makeover Series Part III ~ Two Cool Chairs

MSU Workshop Makeover Series Part III ~ Two Cool Chairs

A lot of chairs are refinished during our Shizzle Style Furniture Paint Workshops and our special workshop taught at MSU was no exception.  We had two gals bring in chairs that day and both of them turned out FABULOUS!!!

Stephanie brought in a typical kitchen chair to refinish but it’s what she did with it that makes it so special.

Don’t let chairs fool you ~ their spindles can be quite tedious.  That didn’t stop Stephanie, she was on a mission.  Finish her dining room set and then search for a cottage to match Winking smileShizzle Design Furniture Painting Workshop taught at Michigan State University CeCe Caldwell's Chalk Clay Paints ideas colors tables bench end tables tips MSU learn how to 4

When she finished with her first quick coat, she layered over it with Alaskan Tundra, did a little wet distressing and sealed with clear wax.

It still amazes me how quickly a little paint changes the appearance of things.

    Love those chairs! I wouldn’t think to layer those two greens, but it came out gorgeous! At first when you said “Karen”, I thought I had been there 😉
