A Chair Project

So, the garage sale went well and somehow it's now Wednesday night...and my garage still looks like I could open it up and have a sale this coming weekend. That. is. not. good.

Oh well. When I should have been cleaning it up, I did a project instead! I got this chair at a garage sale a couple of years ago for FREE. And it was ugly wood...perfect for projects!

I painted it yellow then with a small can of oops paint I also scored for FREE!

I just took a piece of extra rough sandpaper to the edges and sanded until I didn't want to. Then I stenciled a "K" for our last name on the seat. After that paint was mostly dry, I covered the entire chair in Minwax furniture polish. It aged it perfectly. I believe it the "provential" shade.

I'm linking this to:






  1. Great the color!

  2. Gotta love anything with a letter or a number on it. I really like the yellow paint too.

  3. I love this! I have a chair just like this in my shed. I'm going to pull it out & start thinking about colors today! Thanks for inspiring me.
