Vintage Chair in Peacock Blue & Blazing Orange. Facelift Furniture DIY Blog.Oh the fun of having an upstairs loft full of random pieces needing a new life.  A couple of weeks ago, I did some much needed spring cleaning in that space, and an idea finally hit me for this chair.

It had been sitting upstairs for well over a couple of years, and I just didn’t have a vision for it. But then I had just purchased a gallon of Blazing Orange, and while refinishing an end table in that color for a custom order, it came to me what it could do for that chair.

It had also been a while since I’d refinished in Peacock Blue, and I was itching for a project with that color.  With some extra upholstery fabric sitting around home, and an idea from an old oak chair I’d refinished, I came up with a plan using both colors!

Blazing Orange is a deep reddish-orange, and the name is one a created after I picked up a can of oops paint in the color. I discovered what it could do for furniture, and aptly gave it a new name.

Go HERE to see an ornate dresser mirror that was also sitting up in my loft, awaiting a transformation.  It sure got one with it’s new looks in Blazing Orange!
