This "Lady" has Curves

So I have had this beauty for over a month now.
I payed $8.00.
Which, for me, is high.
( I know total tight wad right?)
But I loved the high back and fell in love instantly.

She has great lines and curves.
(I kept having the "sheer energy legs" song going through my mind)
 Double bonus... the seat is in perfect condition so I am keeping it the same.

So first I disassembled the seat.
Then I got this spray paint...

(oh I heart this color)
And gave her two coats.
I used one and a half cans.

Next, I sanded the edges. 
I wanted a antiqued feel to this chair!
 Then I applied some ebony stain over top.
I let it set for only a minute and then wiped it down!

 (Loving it)

Then applied a clear coat for protection over top of my painted beauty!

Next, I had to cut out this piece of wood and paint it.....

Cause the back of my chair was coming out, right here....

I debated whether or not to just tear out this backing. But I love it so I thought of another easy fix.

I pin nailed the board behind, like so...

Then I bought this piece....

 Painted it black and pin nailed that in.

 It really makes that back bone pop!
And now she is ready for her debut....
Work it girl....

And I already got to try it out on my last session!

Two chairs down...only like ten more to go.
But for now I think I will start on  some chest-of-drawers that have been calling my name!
Hope this weather holds out!

Have a fabulous day you crafty ladies!
