Another Chair Update

Who remembers these chairs that my neighbor gave me? I think I posted them on Instagram or my Facebook business page.

I wanted to do something a little different with them having already painted up some whimsy. I selected some scrap paper and DecoArt Americana paint colors to match.

Then, I went to work. After sanding the chair, I primed it. Then , I painted two layers of Americana Buttermilk for the base coat.  I covered the front of the backrest slats first.

My original idea was to paint accents on the legs with DecoArt Americana Purple Cow  (I love this color ALOT!!!) Instead, I adorned the back of the slats and the brace on the bottom with flowers from the papers.

Here are pictures of the front and back of the completed chair.

Thank you for following me in my art and life journeys.

    1. Thanks, Jean. I am getting it poly coated now and then I will start on the second one.

    1. Thanks, Sandee. I love how it turned out. I had a little different idea for accents, but decided against it and I am glad.
