Hey, hey y’all – it’s Carmel from Our Fifth House and I’m back today with another furniture makeover a’la spray paint! I heart spray paint in a major way! The amazingness of its super fast transformative power cannot be beat, and the cheapness factor isn’t half bad either. I found this chair for $5 at my local Restore. It was covered in 20,000 layers of dust just hoping someone would see its potential for greatness. Old ugly furniture calls to me like a puppy at the pound. I just can’t not bring it home.
I gave it a good washing and then busted out Rust-Oleum’s green apple spray paint.
I gave it three coats – sanding very lightly between each coat. Then just for fun, I used my sample pot of Annie Sloan chalk paint in Provence (that I scored at the Haven Conference last summer), and gave it the cutest little blue feet you ever did see! I gave the whole chair a good sanding to give it an old chippy paint look. To finish it off and make it super easy to clean I sprayed a clear protective finish over it and called it done!
I just love those blue feet so much!
This chair sits in my guest bedroom. The room that I’ve been slowly decorating for over 3 years now – yes- 3 – I’m just awesome like that.
It’s the perfect spot to plop a purse or small duffle bag – which is so key for a guest room. And for $5 plus the price of spray paint and an afternoon of work how can you go wrong?
You can find all the deets on this gallery wall here.
And opposite the gallery wall is the bed with the door turned rope headboard I diy’d what seems like an eternity ago. Find the tutorial here.
Slowly but surely, this room is getting the love it deserves. Come follow Our Fifth House to see how that buffet turned dresser (under the gallery wall above) is quite fabulously storing all of my craft supplies and guest room essentials! I’m sharing all those details next week!
Do you take forever and a day to decorate spaces in your home? Have you added blue feet to any chairs lately? I swear blue painted feet are the next big thing – you heard it here first people! 😉
