I’ve been on a DIY chair kick lately. I tell my husband it’s because I’m trying to perfect my painting furniture skills. The truth is I see these little gems for a couple of dollars and I just think it’s fun to fix them up.
After I updated this chair from the Goodwill I found another chair at a garage sale for $4.00. I decided to bring it home, give it some TLC, and sprayed it using the same color as the chair mentioned above. It’s Rustoleum’s Strawflower.
I put it in the entry way with my small gold dresser that I bought at Marshalls years ago. Then I added a throw and a pillow. Love it!
Below are both the chairs that I’ve redone in the strawflower yellow. Maybe I should go on the hunt for 2 more mismatched chairs and then I’d have a set of 4.
Do you love this color as much as I do? Should I find two more? Have you updated any chairs lately?

Have an awesome day!

I’ve been playing in spare room again. If you’ve read any of my previous posts, when I decorate I start slow and change my mind and change it up after I live in it for a bit.
Today’s post is about a chair. I’m pretty proud of this because I’ve never done anything like this before. In fact, I free handed the Chevron stripe, no measurements for accuracy of length or width, so it’s a bit abstract. But I like it!
It originally was an old kitchen chair my neighbor gave me. When I updates the spare/craft/guest room last September I painted it just plain ole turquoise. Here’s the befores and after…
Here’s the low down. I first got my trusty blue tape and eyeballed where I would make the stripes. I also added a few random stripes to the back of it.
I used Rust Oleum’s glossy black and added 2 coats, taking the tape off while the chair was still wet. A Saturday afternoon, that’s all it took. Here’s a few more pictures.
I also took a picture of my new chair next to the dresser I updated with duct tape HERE.
Have you been painting any furniture lately?
