Lee Ann from Creative Moments tinted clear glaze with white paint to bring out the beautiful details on this Tropical Cocktail chair!

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy Country Chic Paint’s Tropical Cocktail color. It is such a fun refreshing relaxing color. I had to just have a piece for MY home done in it.

In steps an antique chair that has seen a lot of wear in its years. The veneer seat was down to its last layer and 1/8th 😉

A good scrub and soak:

…and it was time to pry off the remaining veneer and then glue and clamp the remaining layer.

When all was dry it received 2 coats of outdoor Varathane as it will be sitting on my front entry deck.

But first I staged it with a couple other pieces I did in the same fantastic color, an adorable dresser and sweet wagon shelf.

Lee Ann {Creative Moments}

Hello, my name is Lee Ann and I am the creator at Creative Moments. I have always had a love for vintage pieces and an interest in recycling/repurposing. Creative Moments became the outlet for both. Reloving a piece of furniture no longer in style, in disrepair or tossed aside into a “new, one of a kind” piece makes my heart sing. I love seeing these pieces becoming a part of a home, adding character and charm and providing years of enjoyment.
