This project has been a work in progress for several weeks and today it is finished! I had no idea how many "paintable" surfaces there were on a chair. I started by purchasing a yard of upholstery fabric (which was 50 % off). Using this as my color pallet, I painted the chair with flowers, checks, squiggles, and of course, dots. I do love it! The chair itself was destined to be sent to a thrift store until I took another look at it. It is very sturdy, well made and will make a nice occasional chair.
I encourage you to look around your house. Maybe you have a chair sitting in a corner, looking sad and unappreciated. Make it pretty!
