Although I know painting these natural oak chairs will make a big difference I’ve put off beginning the project due to the prep work. Oh, how I dislike prep.
First the chairs need to be totally sanded to remove not only the old finish but also the dirt that has accumulated over the past 30 years.
Then I wipe the dust down with a mineral spirits soaked rag.
The captain’s chair needs to be glued together because the arm rest pulls apart every time the chair is lifted.
We’re gluing the chair together with super glue then clamping it. I’m hopeful that this will work but if not Charlie said we could try Liquid Nails.
All Saturday morning and only 2 of the 4 chairs are ready to be primed. Ugh! Slow and sure wins the race? If yes, then I’m the tortoise.
Are you the tortoise or the hare?
