school chair makeover


i bought these old school chairs several months ago and i just finally got around to painting them. they were in desperate need of a makeover. i decided to go with aqua for the metal part of the chair and i stained the wood. i really liked the way they turned out!

painting the metal.

you can see that the stain on the wood really makes a difference.

all finished! they are in my family room and sit next to a desk i bought from an amazing friend that even predicted that i would buy it!

  6. You are cracking me up! I got almost the exact chair from Craigslist this summer with a little desk...although I like yours better. :) My original plan was to paint the chair EXACTLY like yours! :) For some reason I ended up doing a bright pink instead, but if it was staying in our house it would have been the blue all the way. VERY CUTE! I love how you staged it with a pumpkin too...great way to get it noticed at Halloween!
