A Sentimental Makeover

Cait from Little City Farmhouse gave this chair a beautiful upgrade with a painting sponge, our limited edition color Driftwood, and some natural wax!

Hello readers!

One of my favourite parts about painting is giving new life to old pieces that maybe aren’t in great condition aesthetically but have sentimental value. I often get pieces like that in the shop and I love working on them! Sometimes they are big pieces, and sometimes smaller like this chair.

I cleaned and sanded the chair and then painted it with two thin coats of Driftwood (a limited edition colour from this past spring) using the new painting sponge. The painting sponge is a dream to use and makes quick work of finicky parts like spindles and chair rungs, etc.

When it was dry, I lightly sanded it to highlight just the edges. The All-in-One paint has a built in topcoat, but with pieces that may get a lot of use – like chairs – I like to add a thin coat of wax for extra protection.

This chair, as simple as it may seem, had sentimental value. I love what good furniture paint can do to keep the history but update it’s look!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
