Happy POWW! I hope you are here to share your latest and greatest furniture project today! I have been trucking away working on Sawyer’s room so I have a little makeover today that was done for his room. You may recall last week I gave you a little sneak peek of his room….
See those chairs with that table? Well only the green chair stayed, and I made over two of our old playroom chairs to go in his room. Here they are in the old playroom at our old house….
Two of those chairs went to Emmy’s room (the spindly ones) and the other two went to Sawyer’s room. The two that went to his room have a more masculine shape, which was perfect. However, the turquoise green color was not working in his room as it did in Emmy’s. They needed a paint job! Oh, and as a sidenote, We still have that table in our new playroom at this house- I just found some new vintage chairs I will share with you one of these days.
Anyhow, I had red high gloss oil based paint left over from my gold leafed nightstands, and I knew that would be perfect in his room. I sanded them down, and gave them 4 coats of the red paint, allowing 24 hours to dry between coats. Oil based paint is not great for the impatient painter, but it gives the most durable finish- perfect for a 6 year old boy! Here they are now….
That is much better for his room! He and Emmy love to sit here and color together. Sawyer wants me to paint the green chair “all green”. He doesn’t like the chippy look which makes me love the green chair even more. So I will tell you what I told him- “We’ll see.”
