Upcycling A Chair With Dixie Belle!
Before. Boring and old fashioned. Let’s give it a update with Dixie Belle!
1
Remove the old fabric cover.
2
Plan for this piece? Ombré Mad Hatter painting!
3
Clean well with White Lighting.
4
Lay each color down with a separate brush. Amethyst, Aubergine, Bunker Hill into Peacock.
5
After your first coat has dried. Ombré the colors together with your separate brushes.
6
Blending with a damp brush and pulling the two colors together. Work in sections.
7
When applying the second coat to blend use a light hand and feathery strokes.
8
Using Gemstone Mousse in Golden Gem accent the ball feet.
9
Also accent any other raised detail like the diamond shapes. Thin even coats.
10
Let’s add a WoodUBend Moulding. Paint the moulding with the Mousse. When dry we will apply.
11
Working your way over the details with Gemstone Mousse. Highly pigmented and smooth finish.
12
Gemstone mousse water based with zero VOC’s. It needs to be fully dry before you seal.
13
WoodUBend mouldings are bendable mouldings your can apply to anything. Heat before application.
14
WoodUBend trim arrives in a roll. Heat to unroll before application.
15
I will be applying this trim to the seat where the fabric meets the seat. I painted in Mousse.
16
One coat is enough to cover the trim easily. When dry we will apply to the seat.
17
Let’s accent the flowers. Best Dang Wax in Black applied with a French Tip Brush. Wiping back on top
18
Let’s apply some Gilding Wax to the painted surface. This will add shine and detail.
19
Chameleon Wax in Cactus was applied to the blue areas.
20
I used a staple gun to apply the new faux fur to the seat.
21
Heat the WoodUBend and apply to the edge where the seat meets the fabric.
22
Look at that shine! Amazing way to highlight the detail.
23
From old fashioned to a chair fit for Alice in Wonderland!
