Once I added the vintage school chairs to our family room, I started yearning to make more changes.
It was another one of those episodes, like this one, where I grabbed a can of paint and a paint brush (around 9:00 p.m. on Sunday) and jumped right in. Not even my husband asking "Really, you're going to do that RIGHT now?" could stop me. However, I am concerned that if he had to ask, does he really know me at all?
Anyway, this is what I painted....
Before I attacked it with my paintbrush, it looked like this....
We have had this chair for a long time and I have loathed it for almost as long as we have had it.
Not sure why I never got rid of it. It has definitely seen its better day. I have been thinking about painting it for a while now and I even shopped around a bit for some spray paint in a color that would work. I never came up with anything. Itching to get it done, I remembered we had some exterior paint in the basement that was the perfect color. I would love to tell you what it is, but I have a really bad habit of getting the paint can so covered with paint that I can't read the color. We used it on our outdoor shutters and it's a Benjamin More green/gray color. That really helps, doesn't it? Painting it with a paint brush certainly wasn't the easiest way to go about it, but I still spent less than one hour on the entire project.
I originally thought I wanted to have the cushions recovered,
but the leather is very durable and the color goes pretty well in this room.
I think I need to go on the hunt for the perfect pillow (or fabric to make a pillow)
to complement this chair.
So here it is all nestled up to the vintage school chairs. Don't they look cute together?
More changes to come, to, you guessed it, this room. Stay tuned.
Anyone else share my
