This past week I painted my ugly green kitchen chair to a beautiful blue cozumel! Now that I am all moved out of my apartment and all moved into Mike’s, I had to sadly repaint my walls back to their original colors. Upon moving into the apartment Mike and I had painted an accent wall in my bedroom, the cozumel color, and an accent wall in the living room, a deep purple. So when it was time to leave Mike had a genius idea of keeping one of my kitchen chairs and painting over it with the leftover cozumel paint.
Here is a picture of my bedroom wall with me in a matching shirt (Concidence? No, this is most certainly one of my favorite colors):
Here is a crappy picture (sorry) of my crappy kitchen chair before:
I sanded it with medium sandpaper and then applied two coats of paint. I painted the chair the night before we rented the moving truck for my bed, dresser, etc. and so I thought the two coats was good enough. When we went to load the chair on the truck I realized after seeing it in daylight that I needed another coat because the first two certainly didn’t cover. So Monday I painted a third coat and here are the finished results:
Now when we make the move to Wisconsin I can use it as my desk chair or a comfy spot for all my stuffed animals. Yes, I’m a grown adult, and yes, I have more than one stuffed animal. :)
Above is he final product with a matching seat cushion perfect to fit my teddy bear!
