Candace KitCHen ChAiRS-SteP 1

These chairs were a PAIN in my BUUUTTTTTT!!! I didn't have any idea these six chairs were going to be so much work to remove the fabric. The first thing I did was started taking off the upholster tacks and the decorative trim. I found three of the chairs had no fabric under them, two had green fabric under them, and the one in this picture had this fabric. Under the trim I found HUNDREDS of staples and brads, NO NOT BRADS!!!!!

So as you can see here are the THOUSAND-HUNDRED staples on these chairs. Not only did they use staples they used brads. If you don't know what they are they are used with an air compressor and they sink beneath the surface of the wood. In order to get the brads out we had to dig them out-PAIN IN MY BBBUUUTTTTTTTT!!!!!

I forgot to take a picture before I put the wood filler in all the holes that we dug the brads out of. But here is what it looks like with the wood filler in the holes.
This is the wood filler sanded off. That took A LOT longer than originally thought. Next Step Priming the table and chairs. I will post the pictures tomorrow. Now the fun begins, YEAH!! Okay I changed how you post my post-THE DUMB computer SAID it's so much EASIER. Can you tall how much easier it was for me. I started this post at 10:30 and it's WHAT TIME know. MY computer is the BIGGEST LIAR. GOOD NIGHT!!!!!! Hopefully tomorrows post will be AALLOTT smoother.

  1. I love the color of paint and stain you used for this table and I am wondering if you could tell me what they were. I'm attempting a redo on a side table and would love to paint with these colors. By the way, not that you don't already know, but you are fabulous! Love your stuff.
