I bought an old ugly Burgundy chair, yes it was a very shiny burgundy chair, but I liked its ornate and carved details.
I didn't sand it , I just used Kiltz Spray Primer ( or Zinsser), then I paint it with "Valspar Aqua Ocean paint". Then I realized that the ornate top that I fell in love with is loose :(
This is what happens when you are so excited and you don't pay attention to how sturdy is the piece that you are buying . To fix it I used "Elmer's Wood Filler" and "Gorilla Super Glue" . Lightly sand the wood filler and paint over it.

The upholstery part was so easy like wrapping a gift, but hey dont forget to use staple gun instead of scotch tape :)
I forgot to take a before picture ( I noticed we all do that in BlogLand) , don't you just hate that especially when the piece you are working on was so UGLY and BURGUNDY , Burgundy can you believe it???
|you can still see the crack but it is no more wobbly|
