See my Country Farm Shabby Chippy Chair?
It’s what I’ve been working on this week.
Found this baby at Goodwill for $3.99.
DON’T HAVE A BEFORE PIC… THIS IS AFTER STRIPPING.
It WAS totally painted white BUT the paint was really gunky and chunky (multiple layers)…
so I have been stripping it.
Only to… yes… repaint it white.
Have you ever stripped paint off of spindles??
It’s kinda hard!
Anyway… still working on it but making lots of progress.
It must have had some red paint and orange paint at one time… but it’s only in certain places… not all over.
It will definitely need Kilz.
What’s funny is that… I kind of like the way looks at this point.
My plan was to paint it white again…
but I kinda like this soft washed look it’s taking on with the chippy paint.
Is that crazy?
(OK… don’t answer that!)
My instinct is to keep working with it to create an even more shabby chippy look.
What do you think I should do?
Just paint it, leave it or try to make it look more worn and shabby?
Thanks For Stoppin’ By!
