Chevron Stripe Painted Chair

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…

Chevron Chair 3-25-12

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.
