Chair Makeover: Miss Rose



A thrift shop find lured me because of its carving. 






Quite weak and very damaged, it was held together with duct tape. 




I can handle it. 








With wood glue and filler, the joints and damaged legs won't be noticed. 



Clamped and left to dry overnight. 





After the glue and filler dried, I sanded off the excess to smooth out the shape. 





Then upholstered the seat with a new cover. 



A velvet, warm colored, stripe fabric. 







Planning to paint the chair, I protected the carving with plastic wrap. I didn't plan to paint that part. After all, it's what attracted me to the fixer upper. It needs to be accentuated! 






Then I spray painted the rest of the chair with Rust Oleum in black gloss .





See how well the filler worked! 




 Then I lightly sanded and re stained some areas of the carving. 





Then hand painted around the rose and leaves with black paint...




and into some of the crevices of the carving. 





Then replaced the seat. 











Now she looks so pretty!

  10. My grandmother had a dining set with these chairs, and your post caught my eye immediately. I adore how you saved and redid the chair. Highlighting the carving was genius. The black paint, stained wood carving, and upholstery all work together beautifully. I'm so glad you shared this with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned! :)

  22. Thanks, Julie :)

    I was amazed to find many chairs with the rose back that were all done so differently when I pinned this to my DIY so I started a board with them all.

  42. This is just beautiful, I really like how you handled the painting around the carving. You've given me hope for one of my loved pieces of furniture where the legs have been chewed by a naughty puppy.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Amazing transformation! I love it! I especially like the way you accentuated the carving on top. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wood filler and sanding before painting can help those chewed up areas. If you plan to stain, you can add some of your stain to the filler before applying it. Good luck with the repair; I hope it works out! :) Thank you, Stella.
