I decided to upholster one last french fabric piece . The chair and bench have a new home .

This is how she started ,  a little dull 

A fresh coat Old Ochre ASCP & some sanding and distressing 

waxing with clear wax 

I was able to use the same foam , but this chair was in need of some new fabric . 

Making sure the cushion looks just right !!

Screw in the 4 screws 

A beautiful Chair 

And the beautiful detail

I LOVE this---bought my ASCP last week, am ready to take the leap---have to learn how to do some basic upholstery next---scared!

Fantastic Paint & ASCP finishing Wax goes on like butter.Basic upholstery is very easy , Just need the right tools - a staple gun & staples , compressor , staple remover ( i use a split screw driver ) , new foam or upholstery batting if you need to replace the old & some Fun Fabric . Let the fun begin !!! I try to find all my fabrics new , but fabrics that have has donated . I believe in recycling before buying new . Have a great day and do be scared !! Kelley
