A few months ago I picked up a wooden chair from Salvation Army. I loved it's shape;
And I LOVED the price!
Can you believe that?? $4.00!! I snatched that baby up and looked around making sure there was no one else eyeing my treasure. But it was definitely a needy chair. It needed something to make it right, make it presentable. I just wasn't sure what that was, ya know?
So ever since I've been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it. Where it should go, what it should look like...colors?? I put it aside as other things came up. Then my son stole it for the desk in his room and I kind of forgot about it. But today I remembered, went to Ace Hardware and hit the spraypaint section.
First I did a primer coat of white, then I started with the color;
AQUA!! For me, that is such a ballsy choice, I'm usually very traditional when it comes to furnishings. But I couldn't help myself when I saw the color at the store. It screamed at me, I swear it did!
So anyway, I painted the chair aqua. It felt so liberating, it was weird. I used Minwax Paste Wax for darker woods to seal and antique the wood.
I love the look, the color, the antiquing, everything! It turned out so awesome!
I have some more furniture transformations in the works, so stay tuned. Hope you all enjoyed!
