|ASCP Refurbished Chairs|
|My upholsterer, Mr. Lee, helped me take off the seats and upper piping to allow me to get the best coverage on the woodwork.|
I have eight ASCP colors and decide which one to use after selecting the fabrics. In this case, I wanted to use the Duck Egg Blue with some Old White as a counterpoint. I found just the right fabrics for this treatment in my collection (have i mentioned that I have a fabric ROOM)!
The most challenging aspect of using the dry brush method to do the second coat is to be consistent in how much of the undercoat remains visible. I found myself constantly stepping away from the piece I was working on and positioning it close to the one(s) I had finished to try to maintain that level of coverage. I don't think I was totally successful but am happy with overall outcome.
I finished the pieces with a coat of clear wax and dropped them off at my upholster - the fabulous Lees of Norcross, Georgia, who do all my upholstery work.
|The chairs came back this week and are beautiful - the fabric really coordinates well with the refurbished ASCP finish.|
|Four "after" Chairs|
|Details of backs - all four are different.|
I plan to try selling these on One King's Lane link to current One King's Lane Sales and will see how they do!
