Colorful chair makeover with gold accents

If you have an old chair that doesn’t match your home décor anymore, don’t just throw it away. It can still be transformed into something beautiful. You can turn It into an elegant desk chair or dining room chair. Let’s see an example. This chair was found at a local store. It was not the best looking chair but it had potential.

The chair had the potential of becoming a lovely addition to a girl’s room. All it needed was some fresh paint, some new fabric and it was ready to become a new piece of furniture. Since the room was decorated with white and turquoise, the chair had to match that décor as well. Before applying the paint, the chair had to be sanded. Then the primer was applied. Then it was time for the water-based enamel paint. Now the chair was bright and stylish. It still needs something.

The gold leaf was the final touch. It was a neutral choice but the perfect shade in this case. The chair is now elegant and stylish. Simple spray adhesive is great for applying silver or gold leaf. It’s nice and simple trick. However, you would have to tape off the sections that you don’t want painted. That means the rest of the paint needs to be perfectly dry before doing that. It’s not a difficult project. It requires quite some time but the result it very rewarding. It might be a little messy but at the end you get a beautiful and brand new chair for your home.The full project on centsationalgirl.
