So I decided to turn our open-sided shed into my makeshift painting studio.
I found a long folding table in our basement and drug it out to the barn to use as a stand for my chairs.
With some of the curves and details on this chair, I knew it would be difficult to sand the entire piece down to prep it for paint, so I figured stripping it down to the bare wood was my best bet. Make sure you cover anything you don’t want sprayed and do this in a well ventilated area!
I liberally sprayed the stripper onto every surface of the chair and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
First I figured out where would be the best place to work on the chairs.
Price for the set £750.00 This is a superb Free Standing Shelving unit made in England by Ercol. This unit is also finished on the back so can be used as a room divider.
Simply removing the shades and leaving the bulbs exposed is a super modern alternative – and it’s free! Ditch The Rug Consider rolling up your rug and storing it, or using it in another room — bare floors feel more casual and relaxed.
If bare floors aren’t your style, try placing a colourful or graphic runner parallel to your dining set for a modern asymmetrical look, as seen above.
It’s a lot easier to work under the chairs this way!
I also covered the table in a plastic painter’s cloth and grabbed a few spare blocks of wood to set underneath each of the chair legs.
