Hello lovelies!! I have a quick makeover for ya’ll today! Can I tell you how excited I am to dive back into painting? Now that our kitchen is complete and our landscaping is done, AND the cooler weather is on the way. (I hope!)
Today I’m sharing the simple makeover of this high chair I picked up for $5 at the thrift store at the beginning of the Summer:
It was really dirty, almost like it had been stored in a barn or shed for about 50 years.
I just loved it though and had to bring it home with me.
One coat of my favorite blue, Sunken Pool by Behr, made into DIY chalk paint (Recipe HERE) gave it a fresh new look:
It also looked like it may have been in a fire?? Otherwise, I have no idea what this gook all over it was:
I sanded it lightly all over and most of it came off pretty easily. Older pieces like this distress so beautifully…
Like I said, I only gave this piece one coat of paint, then I sanded all over to distress. Luckily there were no bleed-through issues!
A simple paint job is all this chair needed since it has so many pretty details…
I especially love the details on the back…
I thought this would be so cute to use as a plant stand, or how about outside on a covered patio holding pretty white Fall mums??
I’ll be back on Thursday sharing what I did with this mirror I picked up for $6!
See ya’ll then! 🙂
UPDATE: Check out how this mirror turned out HERE now!
