And I don't care what anyone else says! (Ok, that's not true. When something is "too nice" to be painted, I sheepishly slump away from the task. I'm afraid that others might think I'm a freak for ruining the wooden furniture... and The Masked Husband is at the top that list!) But I personally prefer for EVERYTHING wooden to be painted in the furniture category!
That's why this chair is so great. I found it on the curb, plus it was in terrible shape. No need to worry about "ruining" it ;-) Also, this chair was worn out enough that it didn't need to be sanded. Score!
First I painted it white, and then I just "hit it" with some blue. If you're looking to use this technique, be sure not to do too "perfect" of a job... but feel free to use a little masking tape if you want so you can be free with your brush strokes!
Next, I wanted something pretty on the seat. So I got my inspiration from this piece of fabric. Isn't is beautiful?! (Ok, I know I'm a more colorful person than most... but I love it!)
