Racher Interior Design

If you want to enjoy my wooden chairs you’ll have to sit inside.  I ain’t no private person and I’m happy to tell the world, I love other peoples junk!

I got these chairs for free, and I bet a lot of you have these same chairs in your home right now.  Let me tell you how to transform them into your own little works of art.

When it comes to refinishing projects I always opt for minimal sanding.  I took the chairs apart, got out the power sander, sanding the rungs and legs to give them an antiqued look.  I lightly sanded the seats, and majorly sanded the curved wood back rest.  With a wet rag, I wiped the same turquoise paint I used on my patio, on the rungs and legs.  I applied a stain to the exposed wood.  Put 3 coats of glossy Varathane on everything.  Reassembled the chairs and attached felt feet.

Can you believe it’s really as simple as that, to add interest to your boring old chairs!
