Hubby Jagger bought me a subscription to the HGTV Magazine for Christmas.
While browsing through the magazine, I came to an immediate halt at this page.
WOW! is exactly right. This color is absolutely eye catching, fun, and BOLD. I definitely wanted to paint something Hot Lips by Benjamin Moore.
I quickly texted my booth mate,Melodie, to inquire as to if she had a chair I could paint. (My furniture surplus is very low.) Yippee, she had this chair! I made a quick dash to the local Ace Hardware to get a sample can of Hot Lips!
After a quick sanding, I applied a coat of white primer on the chair.
Then a coat of tinted primer. (I mixed some of the paint with white primer.) I could have easily just tinted the primer at the beginning, however the white, to pink, to hot lips color actually let me see missed spots.
Next came a seat cover choice. I rummaged through my stash of scraps. This is what I came up with.
Melodie suggested the black and white brocade as the first choice, however I didn't have enough scrap to completely cover the seat. Our next choice was...
I love the end result~
One last before and after~
