Chair Makeover

6/05/2013 03:26:00 pm

Wie auch die Leiter, stammt dieser alte Stuhl aus dem Haus meiner Eltern - wie alt er ist weiß keiner so genau, auf jeden Fall wurde der noch aus richtigem Holz gemacht und nicht aus Press-/Span-/Klebeplatten. Er stand lange in der Werkstatt und so sah er auch aus: zwar schön in hellblau, aber über und über mit Flecken.

Just as the ladder, this old chair is originally from my parents' house - no one knows who old it is but is has been made of real wood and none of that chipboard/pressed wood kind of thing. It was in the tool shed for quite a while and this is how it looked: in a nice light blue colour, but with many, many stains.




Mit in Berlin, wurde er abgeschliffen und grundiert - das sieht meist noch ziemlich streifig aus, das ist aber völlig okay!

In Berlin, I sanded and primed it - this often looks really streaky but believe me, this is totally fine!




Ich wollte ihn gern in mint streichen und am einfachsten war es, die Farbe mithilfe von Wandfarbe und Abtönfarbe selbst zu mixen!

I really wanted to paint it in a mint colour so the easiest way for me was to mix white paint and colour concentrate together!



Nach drei Schichten Farbe und einer Schicht Klarlack steht er jetzt im Schlafzimmer und ist mein Schminkstuhl (toll, oder? Ich hatte noch nie einen Schminktisch zuvor!).

After three coats of paint and one coat of clear varnish, it now lives in the bedroom and is my make up table chair (isn't this great? I never had a make up table before!).




-Kati

P.S.: Die überschüssige Farbe einfach in Schraubgläsern aufbewahren, für Ausbesserungen oder um etwas anderes in genau der Farbe zu streichen.

P.S.: Simply keep the left over paint in jars, if you need to touch up or if you want something else in exactly that colour.

  7. Der Stuhl ist toll - und es gibt den Möbeln einen ganz anderen Wert, wenn man selbst an etwas arbeitet und nicht einfach bei IKEA mitnimmt, ne? Ich renoviere gerade und richte mich fast komplett neu ein und merke jetzt auch, dass meine Lieblingsstücke in der Wohnung die sind, die auch eine Geschichte und Vergangenheit haben. :)

    Liebe Grüße, Sara.
