Well I finished those chairs I picked up to go with the chalkboard table...
If you recall I painted the table last year. (you can find it here). But it never sold...So I decided to get rid of the pink and paint some chairs to match...hoping it might sell for a playroom.
The chairs had a heavy coat of varnish...or something like that...so I painted them with a coat of oil based primmer first.
Below is the before picture ( along with some other goodies I found).
I must say chairs are a pain in the rear to paint!! But I persevered and was happy with the end results.
I added turquoise stripes to match the table and then stenciled on the words Play and Have Fun on one and Dream, Create and Draw on the other...Okay to be honest I can't really remember what I wrote on that one for sure and my pictures aren't very good...but you get the idea...I hope!
I also painted the back of the chairs with chalkboard.....
Here they are at the market.
I wish I had gotten better pics but I finished them the day before we had to set up so I am amazed that I took any at all! Do you want to know the funniest thing is?? The chairs sold but not the table...What the heck??? Guess I'll be looking for more chairs! :)
Thanks for visiting and know that I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side bar.
