I painted this little chair last summer and then took it to Eye Candy ReFind.
Since it didn’t seem to be selling, I decided to bring it home and add a little more pizzazz to it.
But first, I managed to dig up the original ‘before’ photo from May of 2014.
Yep, this chair and its companion were pretty ratty looking when I first brought them home.
Initially I painted this chair with an undercoat of Miss Mustard Seed’s Flow Blue and MMS Linen over that. The second chair was painted in MMS Luckett’s Green, but that one is long gone.
I decided to jazz up the white chair with some grain sack stripes on the seat, and a stenciled ‘sit’ on the back. I have to give credit for the ‘sit’ idea to my friend Sue. She brought the most darling little chair to one of our occasional sales that was painted with ‘sit.’ I am totally copying her.
I used my Cricut machine to cut a vinyl stencil for the ‘sit’. My sister gave me some of the stencil vinyl for Christmas. It worked perfectly for this project.
I just used tape for the grain sack stripes. I sanded them down a bit to make them look good and worn.
I think the chair has a little more pizzazz now.
