Elise from Creativity in DIY made over this trashed chair into a really cool doily graphic design. She found the chair waiting for the garbage man at a neighbor’s house.
Elise writes “I cleaned, but didn’t sand the chair, then taped a piece of a lace curtain panel across the seat and the larger back bar at an angle to leave some of the area plain. Then I got a can of white spray paint (I used flat paint) and sprayed carefully through the lace,making sure not to spray too heavily, let it dry and then removed the lace. Then I got flat white house paint and painted the rest of the chair white. Finally, I used a small brush to edge (approx. 1/8″) the patterns made by the lace in turquoise paint. I still need to put a coat of varnish over the areas that have the design, so that they won’t fade while being sat on.”
Way to go Elise I absolutely love what you have done. I love wood tones peeking through white. Job well done! Read more at DIY in Creativity.
