Not exactly the style I was looking for but I have been looking for so long I thought I could make it work. Following advice from my "Help The Noobs" post I taped off the fabric. I think this step took longer then all the rest put together!!
And here is my Little Boy Blue Chair. I can't wait for my next little man to come in for photos - this week it's all girls though. :)
I gave it three coats of an oil based spray can primer, and a coat of spray gloss poly. Now here's my noobs question for the day: Can I sand the poly and keep the shine? I couldn't really tell where the spray was going and it got a little heavy and ran, so I have a few drip marks. I'm guessing I would have to spray another coat of poly after I sanded? Hopefully some of you more experienced redoers can help a poor girl out and offer some advice.
The pattern in the fabric bothers me just a little but I'm hoping if I use a low enough aperture it will blur out enough not to be so noticeable.
And now, what makes me happy?
Babies, balloon, tutus and belly buttons and here's a shot I took last week that has all 4.I'm partying at:
