ReStore & After 2011 Kristin's Projects

For 1 of Kristin's projects, we went to the Habitat ReStore store and there was not much there, but we did find this old rusted metal chair and thought we could do someting with it. It had yellow plastic all over the frame that had to be scraped off with chisels, and took forever!


Once it was scraped clean, we used a rust cleaner solution, you brushed it on and let it set for 10 minutes and rinse off. I was amazed at the difference.

After a couple coats of primer.

Finished product, we had already picked out a cushion several months ago and she chose the teal color to match. She did a great job and was very cool little chair.

Her other project was a shutter we had picked up at an auction a few weeks ago.

She spray painted it green, we added three decorative knobs in the middle and she used chalkboard spray paint for the top and bottom to add a little flair. Another great job!
