Welcome to the second $30 Thursday that I’ve been lucky enough to be apart of!
Remember how I asked you last week for your ideas on what you’d paint some pieces of furniture in my living room? Well, I found the kind of chair I’ve been dreaming of to go with a farmhouse table / office desk … even before we found the farmhouse table. I’ve loved this chair from Pottery Barn for a long time…
… so when I found this chair at a yard sale for $15 I knew that I could refinish it to look like the Pottery Barn chair that I’ve loved… and couldn’t afford.
So I sanded the chair down as best as I could and stained it with Mixwax’s Jacobean.
I think the chair will be perfect with the table once I repaint the table.
For this $30 project I spent about $3.50 for a sanding sponge and $15 for the chair. We already owned the stain so it was a project that turned out to be far cheaper than the Pottery Barn version.
I had a really hard time getting all the varnish off the chair so the orange-y color is still coming through a little bit but it’s not terrible.
While I was taking these pictures Drew was looking at a photo album that April, AJ’s mom, made for me of AJ. And he was crawling under the table trying to get into the photos. 🙂
Make sure to check out Shayna and April’s projects!
