Recently I shared the pair of chairs with the stamped fabric seats that I purchased on the day of chairs …
I also bought two little kid sized chairs that day, see them there on the left?
Here they are again …
At the time I stashed many of these smaller projects away for the winter so I would have things that were easy to work on inside the house.
I painted the first little chair back in November in a pretty Homestead House milk paint color called Maritime.
I just finished up the second one, and this time I chose Sweet Pickins’ milk paint in a color called In A Pickle.
I’ve had such luck with green pieces lately so I figured I’d try it in milk paint. I’ve painted a few pieces in this color in the past and the little bit of paint powder left in the bag was just enough for this chair.
Just look at the gorgeous chippy-ness …
I opted to just leave this chair unadorned, so no stencils or transfers.
It’s perfect for providing a pop of vibrant color.
The milk paint has been top coated with hemp oil, which really brings out that rich color. Here is how it looked before the hemp oil was added.
The little bowl with the strawberries on it is something I picked up at a garage sale many years ago. It’s just one of those sweet little things that I couldn’t resist.
I’m sure at one time it had a lid, but now it’s lidless. I store paper clips in it. It never fails to bring a smile to my face when I see it. I love the little lines of green around the base and handles.
I’ve hung the chair on the wall for the photos, I think it would be fun to use a chair like this as an alternative to a traditional shelf, don’t you?
I’m slowly but surely making my way through all of the smaller projects that I had stashed away for the winter. Luckily spring is just around the corner (shhh, don’t tell me differently, this is what I keep telling myself) and along with spring comes garage sale season! It can’t get here soon enough.
