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?

  1. Hi Debbie
    What kind of fabric is this? It is gorgeous! Is it available at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics?
    Love removing the arms and the colors. I’ve heard about using wax to remove some of the paint. Awesome idea 🙂

  2. I haven’t ever removed any arms :), but chair makeovers like that are so addicting; I want to pick up any old chair I see and give it some love. Great color and fabric on this one! Beautiful!

    • Hi, Debbie! Your chair turned out beautiful! I love it, the paint color, fabric, distressing and wax, I love it all!
