Good morning friends!! I hope you all enjoyed your Easter!
I have a dilema.. I am in the process of stripping down my dining room table and chairs. I have stripped down one chair:
Only to find out it's a really.. and I mean REALLY light wood color. Almost white itself.
The issue is, I want to shabby it in white. I painted it 2 coats of white, and began to sand on the edges to "shabby" it up, only to discover that the wood is so light colored you can barely see the wood underneath.
Does anyone have a solution to making the wood underneath darker so it shows through better against the white paint? Do I stain the chair before painting? That's what I'm thinking, but, I'd rather not ruin the chair, ya know? If anyone knows the answer, or has a clue, I'd be forever grateful!!
