OLD WHITE ENAMEL PAINT AN ASSET - turquoise wood chair

I wanted to donate this solid little guy to a charity auction event that was coming up,
but the description of eligible bachelors had to have fabric seats.
So he stayed with me.
I'll let you know more about the auction below and how you can participate.

SWHI - single white
with some hygiene issues

I gave him a good shower, a scrub behind the ears, and worked out some of the rough spots.

I mixed a fun color of turquoise using chalk paint and sprayed him.

There was no creaking or groaning from this guy

The next step to this mini makeover was to sand back some of the paint
layers to expose the thick white enamel paint underneath.

The more I worked at it the more wood I liked showing thru.

Minwax paste finishing wax was used to give him baby soft skin.
