My friend, Valrey, a.k.a. the Picker Chic, is my go to person when I'm on the hunt for furniture. If you need something, chances are she has it! I wasn't looking for anything specific, but stopped by just to see what she had. I was so excited to get 2 of these mid century chairs...
The original vinyl seats were in great condition. And I loved the color!
There were are few scratches on the wood and the caning on the back was faded.
I revived the wood and the caning with Dixie Belle Paint Company gel stain in the color, Espresso.
I love this stuff! It's the consistency of pudding. I just dip a rag directly into the can and wipe it on. There are no drips like with traditional stain.
It only took about 10 minutes to revive these beauties!
Valrey also had a little mid century modern table that I thought would go perfectly with the chairs.
The top was scratched and the drawers and sides of the table were missing some veneer...
I used Swamp Mud to fill in the missing veneer, let it dry overnight, then sanded it smooth.
I painted the drawers with the color Peacock.
Then added black wax to make them match the vinyl seats of the chairs.
I used more of the Espresso Gel Stain to revive the wood and make it match the chairs.
It's a perfect marriage...
And, it's fitting that these pieces are now part of the decor at Mill Creek, a wedding venue in nearby Griffin, Georgia.
