I'm sharing a lil' chair makeover that I just finished with you today. It was a simple redo - all be it - but it made a BIG difference.
Here she was before in all her "velour" glory...
Just what color is that anyway?
Some white paint and some distressing...
I was inspired by Miss Mustard Seed's book where she used painter's tape to stripe a chair cushion - I thought I'd give it a try. Of course I had already covered the chair bottom in burlap by this time.
Then I simply used my acrylic paint and painted some stripes down the middle. Be sure and remove the tape immediately.
Then I simply free-handed a "No. 5" - don't ask me why I chose this - it was just the first thing that came to mind ;-)
The color I used was "Settlers Blue" from Folk Art.
And here she is...much better, don't ya think?
I'm actually gonna be setting up a booth with my friend, Julie, at our local antique mall. We are really excited about it. So this chair will be in there for sale around the first of February - that is, if I don't decide to keep it myself.
Have a Happy Weekend!
