the brook chair.

Fusion has new colors, Fusion has new colors!

I’m like a kid in a candy store with paint colors, and it’s even more fun when Fusion offers to send me some of their new colors to play around with.  Thank you Fusion!

They’ve arrived while I am in the thick of things prepping for my upcoming sale, but I couldn’t resist cracking one of them open and doing a quick makeover on this oak office chair that I picked up at the St. Anthony Park sales.

This chair was crying out for a make-over, but I almost didn’t buy it.  The car was pretty full, but I convinced my sister that I could cram it in and I went back for it.  I’m so glad that I did!  It’s super sturdy and it looks awesome with it’s new paint job.

This delicious color is called Brook and is part of the new Penny & Co. Collection.

It took no time at all to paint two coats of paint on the chair and then distress the edges a little with sandpaper.

Brook is the perfect color for my bedroom.

Although I originally planned to sell this chair, I think I’m gonna have to keep it for now.  Wouldn’t you agree?

If you’re a local, you can find Fusion paint at Salvaged with Style in Hudson.  They charge $19.95 for a pint and $5.95 for a sample sized jar.  They will be getting in the new colors by the end of next week or so.  I totally recommend checking them out!

    1. I’ve already had to move the chair twice because it’s in the way. This morning I had to move it so I could see whether or not my shoes worked with my outfit in my full length mirror. Even though it’s the perfect color, it may not make the cut! In which case I’ll try it in the living room, or possibly the piano room … or it will go into the ‘sale pile’!
