I'm constantly picking up little wooden chairs.
To me, they're like a blank canvas.
You can take them any direction!
Crazy-funky, plain jane, a place to finally try out that new anchor stencil you got from Mom for Christmas.... :)
If I told you my secret place for getting two dollar chairs, I might have to kill you.
But I have a source. And only those closest to me know it.
Here's what this one looked like "before.".
Paint splattered and brown - ugh - but sturdy!
I painted it with a home made chalk paint in gray.
(1 Tbls. Plaster of Paris dissolved in 2 Tbls hot water, mixed with a cup of paint)
I used plain ole' white for the anchor on the seat, and tied a blue striped burlap bow on the rungs on the back with some twine.
After distressing the edges with sandpaper, I sealed the whole thing with polycrylic.
Polycrylic, because it doesn't yellow like polyurethane.
Speaking of poly. I have an amazing thing to share with you! Did you know if you put your foam brush, full of wet poly in a plastic baggy and STICK IT IN THE REFRIGERATOR it will last a long time???? I would rather scratch my cornea than try to clean polycrylic/polyurethane and I always wrap them tightly in plastic just in case I'll use it again soon.... but whenever "soon" comes, it's always hard as a rock. BUT THE FRIDGE! I used it three weeks ago, put it in the fridge and then pulled it out for this chair and it was still fine!!! I put it back in the fridge. We'll see how long this can last! :)
Like this? Pin it! I made an image just for YOU! :)
Guess what? You can buy this chair to own and love for your very own at the
