perhaps you recall [or not] thanksgiving pics of a haphazard mix of chairs around my swanky inherited table. well i finally found a 6th thriftable chair and decided to make them all match.
- paint - eggshell finish is best
- plaster of paris
- a paint/mixing cup
- stir stick
- paint brush
- paint key and brush cleaner - not absolutely necessary but helpful and very cheap
- furniture wax - optional
- something to paint
found by the dumpster at my old apartment, with a coat of wax on the seat and the back. i have never waxed furniture before, and this being my ... 3rd experience painting furniture, i guess its time? i havent really had issues with chipping or peeling paint, but the internets told me to. so i did. basically its miyagi - wax on, wax off. done. its a little shinier obviously, but it does feel like it will wear ...nicely. idk. it may have also just been a waste of 5 minutes.
and now some pictures of my imperfect chairs. that all match. yesss. i have yet to figure out how to make the rest of the dining room match now..
