I know I just shared a similar chair last week, but it was aqua. So this is just like, TOTALLY different. And if you notice the seat? Yeah, the other one wasn't raised like that. And the bow? Well, more about that later. I painted this chair with my homemade chalk paint and sort of dry-brushed it on.
|Can you believe I got these chairs for a buck a piece?! The chair was so rough it kind of just distressed itself. I didn't even really need to sand much when I was done. Just enough to make it smooth and not rough like DIY chalk paint typically leaves a surface. I stenciled on the lotus stencil, I mean of course, what else would I use? and then gave it a clear coat of polyacrylic. I thought I was done. Then I saw something on Pinterest. A bow tied on the back of a chair!! How cute. Why don't I think of those cute things myself? See my inspiration HERE.|
|Can anyone guess where I got that burlap fabric? Cuz I didn't pay a dime for it. Take a guess! :)|
|The one on the left sold today at the craft show. Yay!|
'Twas a LONG day at the Western Craft Extravaganza today! Most of the stuff that didn't sell in my booth I loaded up in my van and drove straight over to Fabulous Darling (Which, true to it's name, is FABULOUS, Darling!!). So if you've seen anything on this blog from the last week or so that you'd just love to have or see or drool over or diss or whatever, head over to Fabulous Darling on the main drag in Brooklyn, MI. There are some extremely talented artists in there selling there crafty handy work. You won't be disappointed!! Such an AWESOME boutique!!! Oh, and this red chair ended up there, so if you like it then you best be gettin' over there! :)
