Reader Redesign: Goodwill Chairs

Sandee Green bought 2 chairs from Goodwill, sanded them down, and repainted them–and they look great! I’m so glad she shared these with me. I love to see projects that my readers are working on. I’ll let her tell you about it in her own words.

——————————————

Chair #1 was originally white, but had several “worn” places on it. Paid $5 for it at Columbia Goodwill. Since it’s painted the same color, not much difference between before and after.

Before:

After:

These pics begin with the “sanded” stage. I wish I had taken true before pics of chair #2. It looked as if someone has used it for a painting “ladder.” It required two full coats with a third touch up. I paid $4 for it at Goodwill in Columbia.

Progress:

After:

Thank you for sharing!

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra
