This went from not-so-beautiful orange pine...
To sooo much better with not a skerrick of orange to be seen!
I have an issue with orange pine (its ok if you have it...I still like you!) and there are a few of us who are committed to ridding the world of orange pine furniture, namely Catherine at Paisley Vintage and Alison at Rubylicious Bespoke . We've chatted on Instagram about forming a club/society of people for the beautification of orange pine furniture ;-)
One piece at a time...like this one, which I am supposed to be talking about!
This one was for a client to match the dresser I also did.
I primed the top with zinsser stain blocker first - because it was being painted a light color, that particular primer will stop anything bleeding back through (mug rings etc which may not be visible, but can come through down the track) - then I painted the rest with homemade chalk paint.
FYI, the cane chair I inherited from my Great-Aunt and I have seen a photo of my dad as a baby with this chair in the background...so it's old!! Sorry Dad!! ;-)
I have waxed it...and it needs doing again. It lives outside on the deck, so it gets pretty dry.
I'm leaving it natural because I know that if I painted it, I will change my mind and would never get it back to this!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!
