Chaise Lounge Makeover

When I got engaged, my mission was to transform my little old room into a majestic dressing room for the morning of my wedding. The good thing was I had 6 months, so I searched everywhere for beautiful pieces I could use. This one caught my eye, and it ended up being the first piece of furniture that I refinished. Sadly at that time, I didn’t know that I would be sharing my work and so I didn’t record my progress.
My motto is never buy anything full price, even second-hand furniture because if you can save a couple bucks. So I bargained and got this piece for $90! (from OfferUp).
I started out with wrapping the fabric with bags and tapping the ends up with a strong tape to avoid air bubbles or gaps where paint can sneak onto the fabric. This took some work because I had to pull the ends of the fabric back. So I could get as much wood exposed as I could. After having all the fabric protected, I lightly sanded the wooden ends to smooth and prep for painting. I decided to use spray paint since it really is the easiest and has a good outcome if done correctly.
I found this gold color paint at my local Home Depot and it cost me around $8.
Remember with spray paint it’s a process; I start with doing a very light coat to introduce the paint to the wood. Since its such a light coat it really takes about 2 minutes to dry. I repeated the process until I got the color and result I liked.
In the end, I got this beautiful chaise lounge that is actually extremely comfortable and an amazing picture prop.
