Well hello there! I’m so glad you dropped by… because I love when you visit! Come on in, I have a great chair makeover to share with you today.
Do you remember these fabulous finds I dragged home from Lucketts?
Remember how I was calculating how much less room I would have in my car if I brought my oldest son along? Even with him taking up prime real estate in the back seat, I still managed to cram all of these goodies in! Isn’t that bed in the back gorgeous?!
I know it’s a fantastic haul because the whole lot only cost me $54!! (Excluding the paint and wax of course, they cost more than everything you see here combined!) You can read more about my Lucketts trip here.
Well, I am finally getting around to these beauties. They were almost at the bottom of my project pile. The makeover I’ll be sharing is on the cute little chair on the left.
I call it a half chair. If you know what it was used for or what it’s really called, let me know in the comments. I’d love to know, so I can stop belittling it by calling it a “half chair”.
Anyway, I love you, little half chair, and I love that you were only $10!
Here is the before:
(This was taken in the Spring. Remember when my garden was lush and green?)
And here is the after:
It was really dirty before although the picture doesn’t show the extent of it. I gave it a good cleaning before I painted it, but I always feel like paint really washes it clean.
Some pieces I prefer to sand only a little. This chair already had character on its own, so it didn’t need much.
Here it is before I added the stripes.
It needed a little something more and I think the stripes did the trick.
This is my DIY chalk paint with ASCP in Duck Egg blue for the accent color. I used frog tape for my stripes.
I love how it turned out. This will be going in my boys’ bathroom. I’ll be sharing that soon.
This little pillow below is one of two I found at Pier 1 about twelve or so years ago.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
Thanks again for the visit, come by anytime!
