My sister wanted to recover 4 dining chairs, and requested a design that incorporated "French" and "Cats".
Citra Solv Concentrate (I ordered mine online, I couldn't find it locally), small paint brush, old spoon and ruler. I also made sure to use put something on the counter to absorb any extra - I used a paper grocery bag.
The hardest part of the project might be finding a toner based printer/copy machine that will work with the Citra Solv. I had to try a couple before I found one that worked (my local Kinkos copiers did not work). I found an old copy machine in a grocery store that worked perfectly.
The spoon is used to burnish the image - I used the back of the spoon to rub over the design. It needs to be pressed fairly hard - but not hard enough that the paper rips.
Check back to see the finished chairs!
