As a participant in this month’s Fab Flippin’ Furniture Contest, I painted two old, dusty, dirty dining chairs with this month’s sponsor’s paint in Marigold Yellow! I love this fun, happy, and bright color. What do you think?
This month’s sponsor is The Old Fashioned Milk Paint (OFMP)!
OFMP has great colors to choose from and I was drawn to the the Marigold right away! The theme for this month’s furniture makeover is #FarmhouseFun. I think this color is perfect farmhouse fun!
All of the colors are so pretty but I wanted something totally different than anything I’ve used before.
At first glance you may think think that my “before” chairs are perfectly fine.
Upon closer inspection, you can see how old and dirty they really are! Definitely in need of makeovers!
After removing the seat and giving the chairs a good cleaning, I applied the first coat of milk paint with a brush. Painting these chairs with a brush was not a good idea. I decided to get out my HomeRight paint sprayer to get the job done so much faster.
Which finish do you like better??? I did not add a bonding agent to the paint for this chair so therefore the finish is very chippy. I love it!
But if chippy is not your thing:
Adding a bonding agent to the paint makes for a nice, smooth, non-chippy finish!
I recycled the fabric that I used to recover the seats for these chairs. The fabric came from these roman shades that I made a couple of years ago. After I made the wooden shutters, I saved the fabric from those shades. I’m glad I did – it matches the paint perfectly!
One of the hosts for this month’s contest is Evey from Evey’s Creations.
Evey painted this nightstand in a dramatic Pitch Black color. I love it!
See all of the wonderful farmhouse fun makeovers over at Anastasia Vintage!

This chair turned out great. I love the fabric & color!
The power of paint to transform a piece of furniture never ceases to amaze me and this is no exception! I love the choppy look myself, and the colour is perfect!
Thanks Maureen! I was getting tired of painting everything white! I went out of my comfort zone and am so glad that I did!

I have a similar chair, I was wondering if you suggest me something, the sitting part has and old foam which I want to replace, do you recommend changing the foam and then covering up with a new fabric and then fix it with staples? or use glue instead.

I would replace the foam and then cover with a new fabric.

Nice Job ❤
This chair is beautiful and the color fabric good. Who doesn’t want to sit in a comfortable chair.
Thanks for giving me a good idea.

An ideal guide for a woodworker 🙂
Thank you to provide us this blog..
The images are very helpful to understanding the matter easily…
Despite their racing-inspired looks, gaming chairs are very comfortable. They’re designed with long hours of gameplay in mind, making things like lumbar and shoulder support key priorities for chair designers and manufacturers.
This looks beautiful! Just painting it makes the fabric look shiny and new again. I love it! I just did a full chair reupholster and that it no joke, or small job. I understand the idea of not doing it again. I don’t have it in me to do another one anytime soon.
