I didn't have the time or the inclination to properly refinish the set. So I just slapped some paint on it and called it done.
|My dining chair painted black|
I recently recovered the cushions to match my new blue and grey color scheme. I planned on just slapping another coat of white paint on the chairs but didn't like the look of the fabric with the stark white paint.
I decided the chairs would look better if they were stripped and stained.
I started sanding in December.
Six months later and I'm still sanding.
3 chairs are about 95% complete.
|One chair that I've ALMOST completed sanding after six months|
One chair is only halfway done.
I just can't take it anymore. I cannot bear sanding for another minute.
I give up.
So I just bought these Parsons Chairs on Craigslist.
I plan to make slipcovers for them. Hopefully that won't take six months.
So please, learn from my mistakes. Please think twice before painting your stained wood.
