What a very frustrating few days it has been in my blogging world! My web hosting service decided to migrate my site to a larger server. It went really wrong and took them a full day to fix with my site being down the entire time. Wednesday’s post was lost in the process and many never had a chance to read it before it disappeared. Thank you to all who emailed and got in touch to let me know of the issues. I really appreciate it! Technology – how I love and hate it at the same time 🙂
From Wednesday, here are the pics of the chair as well as my Quick Tip Tutorial of the Week – How to Apply French Gold Gilding Wax by Cire a Dorer.

Today is Friday and it is LINK PARTY time! I’ll be back later!
Beautiful job!! Thank you so much for the tutorial!
Thanks, Helen! Glad you enjoyed it!
All I can say is WOW!
Thank you so much!
Suzanne, I love your work and thank you for taking the time to document and post tutorials for our benefit. May I ask, why do you not remove the upholstery before you refinish the chairs? I would think the possibility of damage when being reupholstered would be lessened if the old was removed first.
Hi Deb – she is having the chairs reupholstered so I could go to town and splatter away 🙂
Do you have to apply a sealing coat after the gold gilding wax since people will be sitting on the chair?
Not really as it is a wax and acts like a sealer in itself. I applied a clear coat sealer over the dining room chairs to give them a really good strong sealer and this was done on top of the gold. However, if you are adding it on a dresser, etc. you really don’t need to.
Wow, thank you for the speedy reply. You are really on top of things. I’ve never gotten such a quick reply. Have a great day.
You are welcome! I am actually the least on top of it person lol so this was awesome to hear!
