Thrift Store Chair


  This chair was a thrift store find.

Solid wood and inexpensive, but in need of a makeover.

After sanding it down, I gave it a few quick coats of Rustoleum Camouflage Spray Paint.  This was my first time using Camouflage Spray Paint and I really liked the ultra-flat finish.

Ta-da!  A nice new chair!  This chair makeover was quick and easy!

A great addition to my entryway.
