The little green chair that could...

Remember the $15 flea market wicker chair? It had a few missing wooden pieces here and there, and was in need of a makeover, like the blog!
Well, 2 cans of black spray paint and voila'....the little green chair is black and fits right into the green and black bedroom! Didn't she turn out nice?
Of course this leads to grander ideas...I'm going to stencil fluer de lis designs on the lamp shades and spray paint the base of the lamps black too!


But that's a project for another day; like tomorrow!

I read that every bedroom needs a chair, and so now we have one in our little guest room. I'm not very artistically talented, so spray paint is a good easy project for any of you who are also artistic-challenged! :-) The "real" painters wrapped up the main floor of the house yesterday, and so it will feel good to get everything put back together. Our kitchen valance hardware comes in on Thurs. so as soon as Tom has those hanging, I will show the final pictures! Enjoy your day, and until next time...find something to paint!

I love the chair it looks great in black. The lamps will be great too, I have a suggestion, raise them on the boxes so they are higher. It will look more proportionate. Love you

Oooo Denise, it looks great! It'll look good with the stencils as well. Every room needs a chair? IKES... does that include the folding chair in the corner? haha

Perfect...I love it in black!

I need one just like it for my little room I'm redoing. I guess it's time to hit the goodwill!

Melissa said...

You are doing a great job on that room for you to not be very crafty! I don't believe it for a second. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for praying for my niece. She's doing much better and already growing like a little weed! :)
Stop by again! :)

Lazy Mom Leslie said...

I too have that little green chair! Mine is still green, I think it came from Pier One years ago. If I remember correctly I paid $30-40? Not sure. Looks great black!!

I'm glad you went with the black. My dad used to say "how do you like them apples?". It made me smile.
