This chair makeover was a fun little project which took me just an hour.
What was once a white wooden chair is now a bright, colorful, geometric chair with gold dipped legs.
My husband and I stumbled on this chair one Fine day and pretty much got it for free. I had absolutely nothing planned for it but how do you turn down free stuff so I just ended up getting it either way.
Here is the Before shot.
It was in a pretty good condition but had some paint chipping on the legs and the back of the chair. The chair had no cracks or broken areas so that was a Plus.
Supplies you need for this project
Four shades of Blue Paint
Gold Spray Paint (my favorite)
Gold Liquid Gilding (for touch-ups)
The color combinations I wanted to use for this chair was in the family of blue from minty green (not technically blue but oh well) to ocean blue.
First spray paint the entire seat of the chair with Metallic Gold spray paint.
We need to do it first since we want those pretty gold lines to show through after we paint it on top.
When the chair is dry start taping it.
Literally whatever design you want, just go in and make it at this point.
Then comes the fun part where you paint all over with the paint colors you had chosen previously.
While the seat was all painted and getting dry I spray painted the back of the chair in Gold as well.
The legs got the Gold Dipped look simply by masking tape the tips equally on all four legs.
And there you have it.
