After and then before.
Love the color she used! Turned out so great! She reminded me of the tip to put your paint in the fridge in between coats so that it doesn’t dry out.
The next was done in a very similar blue. It’s from Bungalow. She did report that the more worn areas of the fabric (the chair is 25 yrs old) didn’t take the paint as well. So, that is something to remember. you can notice those areas below.
The third chair is from Kathleen at Carrie Bradshaw Lied.
I like how some of the pattern is still showing through and how she did the bronze nail heads.
The last chair is from a reader without a blog, Kristin.
Remember, the after photos are first! The second photo is the before.
Have you painted a chair? Would you?
This method is best for seating that isn’t used a lot, but could offer color and style to a room. The fabric does get stiffer, though it’s not horribly scratchy. It’s not something to cuddle on at all, but it’s a great solution if you want to save money, yet update a piece of furniture.
Be sure to visit each indidual blog for more information on one of these chairs.
