Refinished Windsor Backed Chairs
Here are after shots of a chair I recently refinished.
I put these Windsor backed chairs in a garage sale last year but they didn't sell. I stored them away, thinking I'd sell them on Craigslist but then decided I really loved them, just not done in honey maple finish. Here is the before shot of one of them.
Instead of sanding them, I used Zissner primer, then three coats of BEHR Peppercorn acrylic paint.
I made seat covers for them using three different graphic images I found on The Graphics Fairy and transferred those images onto pure unbleached cotton using the CitraSolv method.
As you might be able to tell, they get a lot of use. My cats spend the entire day sleeping on them, and the images are holding up rather well so far.
