When we moved into our house last year it was the first time I was going to have both an eat in kitchen nook as well as a formal dining room. I have always wanted that! Anyway, my family has had this table that has been passed around to all of the sisters at some point I think. So I had a table for my nook, but no chairs. So I found these at a garage sale the weekend I moved in. I was excited because they were a perfect match for the table. But as they sat there for a year, that area became very colorless to me. Wood chairs, wood table and wood floor. It needed something. Also the wicker was uncomfortable for as often as we sat there, so I decided to recover them.
Here is the before of the chair.
I started with a base coat of Krylon spray paint in avocado.
It was a little much on its own for me so I distressed and glazed them as well. I use Valspar premixed glaze. Just paint it on.
And wipe it off.
I then used a drop cloth and stenciled numbers on for a little whimsy and recovered the chair with two inch foam, batting and the stenciled canvas.
Then end result is a much cushier, more colorful set of chairs.
I LOVE them.
I have a few more projects in store for this area, including a new rug and I am thinking the table will go two tone soon!! I can't wait to show the finished room!
Edited: I painted the table too! Now it is nice and bright and lovely!!
