Brilliant Gold

I recently posted about my fabulous Louis Chair that was purchased at a Goodwill for 7.00! I decided that it will be my new office chair! I decided to paint the chair gold and uphoster it with the black and white fabric that I purchased a while back from fabric.com! I purchased Krylons Brilliant Gold SPray Paint from Walmart and got busy... WELL.. First, I didn't like the spray paint... it was more of a copper than an actual gold... This won't do... I flew to Family dollar to purchase the 24k spray paint that I normally use. (I wanted that vibrant gold!) It was hot as fish grease outside yesterday, I shake the can and start to go over the gold that was already there and look at what the hell happened.... It was everywhere! 

I panicked! so i grab a a wet paper towel and attempt to wipe it all and made it worse...
O M G... So off to home depot I went to purchase some paint stripper! (LOVE IT BTW)
I stripped the hell out of this chair lol and decided that the Kyrlon is not THAT bad....
I just couldn't risk going through this again..

and here she is with her first coat! two more to go.. some satin finisher and her material!
