There’s something about springtime (which is too quick becoming summertime in Arizona) that makes me crave bright colors, especially greens, blues and yellows. Sometimes bold is scary in big doses, so small projects like chairs, side tables, or the like prove the perfect place for a pop of fun color.
I started with a very blah chair with a funky shape and some interesting details that I knew could benefit from a fun color scheme.
(As a side note, I’m thinking I should do a post entitled “The Art of the Crappy Before Picture”, including my tried and true tips on leaving bits of junk in the foreground, wading up your drop cloth under the back leg, leaving backyard toys strewn about in the background, making sure the seat is thrown on as wonky as possible, etc. You know what I always say: “The crappier the before picture, the more amazing the after picture!”)
I used the same vintage fabric I used on this set, which was a table cloth I picked up at a thrift store. I love the fabric and have only used about half the table cloth, so you might see it pop up again someday.
I pulled the bright blue from the print to paint the chair.
I love the little bird!
Hope you all are having a happy springtime before the dog days are upon us!
