Dipped (and Striped!) Chair Makeover

Krista blogs over at The Happy Housie.  Recently, she freshened up her entryway with board and batten.  The shabby little chair sitting in the entryway looked even shabbier next to the pretty new walls, so Krista decided she needed to spruce it up a bit.

She began this makeover by mixing up some homemade chalk paint, using paint leftover from the board and batten project  (Benjamin Moore’s cloud white).    After several coats of the white paint had dried, Krista taped off the seat and legs to create the striped and dipped looks.  The pretty green, yellow, and blue accents looked just right after they were lightly whitewashed.  The end result is a brand-new chair with a fun, preppy look.
