20 minutes with a piece of sandpaper, 30 minutes with a tub of paint and 10 minutes with a fabrics, hammer and nails and the chair is as good as new. I really like how it came out. I almost left it in its natural wood but after I discovered how easy it is to sand it down I decided to risk it.
I quite like how it fits into its dedicated corner as well. Now I just wish I could do something about that floor. And those walls. And the lightning. Basically, can I have my own flat please?
