Just a reminder of what we started with below...
The red was vinyl and you can see the tear on the seat... but she's really solid. And she looks really different now.
I'm sold on using the wax to finish furniture. I just used the Minwax furniture paste wax off the shelf at Lowes. You brush it on really thin. After it dries well you buff it with a clean, dry cloth.
It makes everything nice and smooth and it has a beautiful sheen to it. Not too shiny but not matte.
I was able to do the whole chair with two feedsacks. I used one sack for the front and back of the upper section; and part of a second one for the seat.
The trim does really finish it off nicely...
I used the "Sprinkler" color underneath and the color on top is called "Fresh Linen".
Really happy with the whole thing. I learned alot!!!
