stadium chair makeover

I’ve had this stadium chair for a while.Β I priced it and loaded it up to take to Tattered Tiques this past week.

It was pretty as it was, but my CLAAS (can’t leave anything alone) syndrome kicked into high gear and I brought it back home to give it a little love.

I gave it a french grain sack stripe in Annie Sloan’s Coco and Old White. And it needed a number, so five it was. I lightly distressed it and waxed the whole chair in Minwax paste finishing wax. It brought the wood back to life.

This will available at Tattered Tiques on February 9th.

Happy Monday.

  6. Awesome! I have this exact chair sitting in the shop plain jane. I am going to get it out and spruce it up! thanks for the inspiration. Did you use the coco in the middle and old white for the outer stripes?

    • Yep! Happy painting! πŸ™‚ BTW, I didn’t show the back but the stripes go around the back too.

  8. Wow what a great makeover! The problem with my case of CLASS is that I tend to overdo things but this is such a terrific, simple (by which I don’t mean simple to do I mean clean, unfussy and way cool) change that brings the thing up a lot of notches. Great job.

  10. I know we share a love for stripes and numbers, but I’m more than jealous right now. Can you see how green I am?! These are spectacular simplicity and I am just going to have to “borrow” this idea from you soon.
