Makeover {Chair-no arms}

 

I found this brand new chair at Goodwill.  It still had plastic over the seat cushion.

No matter what I tried, I could not get the arms tighten.  I used glue and a lot of pressure to tighten the screws.  Nothing was working.

I removed the arms, filled the holes with wood putty.

I grabbed my Purdy paint brush and painted the chair with

Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint.

I distressed, waxed, polished.

She never looked better.

Sometimes you have to take-away to make something better!

Have you removed any arms?
