I sanded it and got my favorite shorts all black and gross. I didn't realize that would happen.
Then I wood-glued the little curvy pieces back into place and clamped them down for a while.
Then I primed & painted...with the only spraypaint I like, which is Rustoleum. I used the "Painter's Touch" which is supposed to cover 2x the amount of a normal can. I think it does, too. It's really nice. I used Heirloom White, which really is a perfect shade of creamy-off-white-almost-white-but-not-too-stark-white.
primed. looks better already! I swear I think the stuff on it before was car primer or something.
I went to Jo-Ann's and bought a foam thingy. I could not believe how expensive the foam by the yard is! How appalling!!! So I got a little pre-cut square for $5, which I still think is too much. Oh well. I put it on the plywood, wrapped it in batting, then muslin...THEN this awesome Waverly damask that my mom gave me (thanks!!!!)...and here we go.....
What a pretty chair!
And it was trash-picked...I found it on the side of the road...and I have 4 more down in my basement.
This one is going to be my new sewing chair. I'm doing a big furniture switcheroo in my living room...soon. I'm saving up for a nice couch. One that does NOT look like it's been trampled by a herd of circus elephants. Preferably leather, if I live that long. But that's another story for a different day...in the meantime, admire my chair! Admire it!
