When you find chairs on the side of the road during Council ‘throw-out’ days, it is the perfect time to pick up a chair for nothing and have a go at trying something new.
For this wooden chair I gave it a quick clean and sanding with my electric sander. Then I applied a primer paint, which is important if you do not want the underlying varnish to come through your paint colour over time. Then I applied a coat of blue wall paint that I had sitting in the shed. Probably not the right type of paint, but why not give it a go???
