I've been chair crazy lately!!

Okay, so I am COMPLETELY obsessed with Craigslist and with junking in general. I am usually drawn to dressers, but lately I have been seeing so many cute wooden chairs, and of course I could not resist! So the other day at a N.A.M. resale shop I picked up 4 wooden chairs for $30. Two were matching and two were just random chairs.

I could not wait to get my hands on them!!! Where do I start??? I couldn't decide, so I just jumped right in and worked on three of them at once. I worked on the yellowish ornate set and the small wooden one first. I immediately removed the BRIGHT red tablecloth that covered the seat cushions and replaced it with a cute, whimsical green fabric. I then sanded them down and painted the set a cream color and the small wooden chair a cute green color. I still need to distress and glaze the cream chairs, but they are looking soooo cute!!! Here is a preview...
I have finished distressing and glazing the small wooden chair, and it turned out soooo cute. It would be so cute in a little girl's room with a cute pillow in it. Or in a little boys room with a little brown teddy bear in it. Or in a study behind a cute farm table/ desk. Or in a kitchen with mix matched chairs around a cute table. Can you tell that I think it's cute??? :)
I haven't started on the arm chair yet. I can't decide if I should go with my usual white or get crazy and paint it a soft grayish blue. Let me know what you think!!

Oh, and the chairs are for sale!! Let me know if you are interested!

  1. Your chairs look great, I love them!! Saw your link on Shabby Chic Cottage. :)

  2. Thank you!!! They were fun to do! I am heading over to your blog now to check it out!! Thanks for looking!

  3. Oh my, what beautiful, adorable chairs!! Wow, those carved ones are incredible...they are looking awesome! And the green cutie is won't last long!! Can't wait to see what you do with the armchair...! I say go for it if you want to paint it a fresh new color!A one-off chair like that is like a great piece of jewelry or a purse or's almost more like an accessory than a piece of furniture and as such it would make a great statement with the soft grayish blue rather than the standard white... Just my 2 cents...and hey, if you don't like it you can always repaint it! :o)

    Loved meeting you Monday at the Creative Ladies meeting...I look forward to visiting with you again soon!

    Hugs & Blessings,
