Wow, the challenge is at half way and I have a lot to finish. If you are new here, I fill you in quickly of what is going on. I took the challenge to makeover our BLAH breakfast room in 6 weeks.
So today there is another colorful makeover to show you. By the way, have you seen my SPRING REFRESH home tour?? Spring totally sets my mind to colors. I mean I love colors anyhow, but when the sun is shining it’s kinda making my design style to go cheery and fun.
I had these chairs in the breakfast room since my first son was born… and that means almost 6 years now.
Wow, I only realize how fast time flies when I say it out loud. These chairs had all the wear, stickers, food and yucky stuff all over them. It was really time to either change them ( not my style:-) or fix them.
I normally choose FIX things up.
This is the before pic of it:
Yeah, you agree that it needed help, right?
I took the chairs apart and started sanding them with my machine.
Then I went on with my favorite Rust-Oleum spray paint. This shade of yellow was exactly what I was looking for. Not too bright and not too yellow-yellow.
I am still debating if I should give a finishing coat of some sort so the paint won’t chip off easily. Will update you if I figure what exactly I need from Home Depot:-) (Leave a comment if you have a clue)
Love how this chair turned out. I really do. Such fun color while it was such easy-peasy makeover.
Looks like a new, stylish modern chair from the store.
And now I am going to have to make a confession here at the end of the post!
I am a cheater…the project is actually not completely done. Yep, the other 3 chairs has not gotten done just yet…. all of them are sanded already, waiting for the sunny day to come to finish the painting part:-)
I hope I inspired you to get your hands on some spray paint. Be sure to check back next week to see the next project in the room.
