Chair Makeover With Velvet Finishes

I was sent product for this post in return for my honest opinion. All opinions are 100% my own. You can see more of my disclosure here.

I know I have said it time and time again, but paint is the easiest way to transform anything (walls, furniture, exteriors, etc.). If I want to change the look of something, I always start with paint.

In this post, I finally painted a chair I have had hanging in the garage for a long time. I didn’t like the wood color and always pictured it painted. When Kelli from Velvet Finishes contacted me to see if I would like to try her paint, I was more than excited to do so and knew this chair would be the first thing I painted.

I chose to paint this chair Rococo.

It is a perfect creamy color and just what this chair needed to brighten it up. BUT…..the real star of this makeover is the Ready spray! AMAZING!!! I was so excited to try this product. After I washed the chair down, I sprayed it with the Ready spray and let it dry. Then, I applied the paint and it covered the chair so nice! It was like I had started with a primer.

We had a few warm days last weekend so I was able to use my Homeright paint sprayer for this chair. Chairs are not fun to paint with a paint brush so if and when I can, I like to use my sprayer.

Of course, I could not leave the chair a solid color. It needed a little more character so I went over it with some sandpaper.

Now, I really like this chair!

The Rococo color was exactly what this chair needed. It is bright, fresh and full of character. This best part…. it only took me a few hours to finish the entire chair (including drying time).

The Velvet Finishes paint is so easy to use and the color choices Kelli has are amazing! I can’t wait to try out some more colors. I will be posting all about those projects as I get them done.

    Awesome job painting this chair! I wish I could reach out and rub my hands over the paint. It looks so smooth!

    Again, your chair looks amazing! Did you get a chance to look at the Maison Blanche furniture paint I mentioned on Instagram? You can check it out here: http://maisonblanchepaint.com/category_1/Vintage-Furniture-Paint.htm — I took a DIY chalkboard frame class and used the paint and wax and it was really easy to use, dried super quickly and love it!

      I would love to try their paint too! I am always looking for new products to use on my projects!

    Lindsay, could you tell us a little more about the Velvet Finish paint? I could look it up, but I really like to hear first hand how it goes on (smooth, grainy, etc.) thickness, about how many coats – just the usual “should I invest” in this product. I am all in for new products (to me), but I have had some real bummer experiences. Thanks. I hope this is not asking too much.

      Linda, I really liked the paint. I used my paint sprayer with it and it worked very well. It covered the chair in about two coats. The chair is very smooth too. I really LOVE the Ready spray. It is so easy to use and you don’t have to paint on a primer! Love it!!!! I will be using more of the paint colors once the weather gets warmer here and I can get outside more to work on projects! Thank you for your question!
