Fun with colour – another painted chair

So remember I said that I purchased three wooden chairs last week?

And do you remember that I only showed you these two so far?

Since I had nothing to lose and some Arborcoat solid stain left from my treehouse makeover, I decided to play with colour a bit and create a painted chair that was a bit more whimsical.

If you didn’t read my last post, please remember to strip, sand and prime before getting to the fun stuff.

The arrows were another stencil I picked up from Cutting Edge Stencils, so I decided to sprinkle them here and there going every-which-direction for a bit of fun.

The Arborcoat colours I used were Eccentric Lime, Gypsy Pink, Poolside Blue and the purple is a mixture of the blue and pink together.

This painted chair was fun to experiment with, and I think it turned out pretty cute.

Bright and bold colours, and an exterior stain – this might make an eye-catching plant stand in your garden?

I think this sums up highschool for me – I’m going to call it an artistic statement; ¬†wild, crazy and fun, but in school I didn’t have any idea which way was up. lol

Sometimes it’s fun to just let loose and see what happens – and at less than $10 for the wooden chair, I really had nothing to lose.

Remember: “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try” – not that this chair is necessarily an “accomplishment” per se…

How about a before & after?

Have I mentioned I LOVE trying new things?

Ooooooh, I can see a “dirty pour” coming in my future – won’t that be gorgeous?!

Thank you again Clancy’s Rainbow!

Have a great one!

Too funny
