Do it! UPDATE YOUR DINING CHAIRS
Clean the surface of the chair with warm soapy water and a cloth, and when it’s dry, go over the whole chair with mediumgrade sandpaper, then wipe down again with the damp cloth. Let dry.
Give a tin of furniture chalk emulsion a good stir and then paint the chair, following the wood grain where possible. Leave to dry.
Apply a second coat of chalk emulsion and leave to dry. This should be enough, but apply a third coat if necessary.
