I love an old chair. I think about the homes it may have sat in…the conversations that may have taken place…the stories that it could tell. This old captains chair had to come home with me. A bargain at just $20…it was meant to be something much more!
Oh Captain my Captain

It had a lot of lacquer…so I cleaned it up and chose to spray on an oil based primer to insure good paint adhesion.
I used the Zinzer product (brown label) oil based primer in a can.
I then used Valspar navy in high gloss. 2 coats was needed….
Holla!!! The Captain is back in action!!!! Doesn’t it scream summertime?!!?
Don’t you just want to grab an ice cold lemonade in a mason jar and sit on the front porch—all these thoughts just from this little chair.
I made a red gingham pillow to finish it off…
I also finished off the 2 coats of paint with one coat of poly (note—used an acrylic base it you paint a lighter color…)
Time for summer…right?!?!
I love a $20 chair….that looks like a millon bucks now :)
