This is the color they started out, as so as you can see, they're both a little bit green and the previous color appeared to be like an orange type of orange, a yellow color. The previous owners obviously painted them but did not do a good enough job, because you can still see a lot of the orange detail poking through. So I saw them a few days ago and I thought it would be a good project to take on it. Kind of changed the color of a chair before so didn't think these would be too much work and evidently I was right, I'm loving the outcome, so some of the products that I'm gonna use today I'll list to you right down here.
I have this color is by folk art, and I got this from Joanne's. I believe it was $ 7.99 and they had a 40 % off coupon, so this color is Maui sand. This is my second jar of them out. We stand it took about one and a half to do this chair right here, so I have about one jar left and I'm gonna do a few coats of this and then at the end, I'm gonna put on a Claire wax to kind of seal. The color in so it does not transfer, and it gives it a little bit of protection to put the paint on to the chair. What I do have is one of their brushes.
This is also from full art. I'll give you up cat get out of here goes my kitty cat. Yes, you smell that all right, so I use this brush to apply the paint and before applying the paint onto the chair, I do want to wet the fabric get away from the chair, sir. I do want to wet the fabric so that the paint kind of go in a little bit easier. He is so annoyed because he loves these chairs, get away hi Jackie away from the chair, you Jackie away that kitty. First, I start by spraying the chair down with some water.
That's gonna get the chair, nice and moist. I know I know that is such a bad word when it comes to being descriptive, but that's exactly what you want getting the chair, nice and wet.I can't get in the chair wet before you apply. The paint is going to help the fabric a lot more when it comes to absorbing and kind of distributing the paint a lot easier. So here you see me applying the paint in a circular motion and there's a reason for that now.
The reason that I'm doing it in a circular motion is to make sure that, with this type of fabric being that is raised, meaning that it's not smooth, I want to make sure that I'm getting the paint into every nook and cranny, and the circular motion allows Me to do just that way, when I look at the chair from any angle, whether it's from standing up or off to the side, I'm not seeing the previous color as you can kind of see. If you look from one angle, you can see a little bit of the orange that was the original color of this chair is that the person that applied the first coat on this color green that you're seeing here, they didn't do it in this technique.
