Chelsea's Chairs



Good Monday morning ! Hope you had a great weekend ! My daughter is buying her first house, she closes this Wednesday ! She is very excited.. We have been going to church rummage sales , estate sales and thrift shops, buying things to fix up for her new home.. We got 4 of these pretty chairs at a church rummage sale for $15.00 each.. they are sturdy chairs from a bank in town ( they had a sticker with the banks name on them)
She is going with a beachy color scheme in the kitchen ,family room ,dining room areas.. so she painted them this pretty green color. She used Behr paint and primer mixed with plaster of paris and water to make chalk paint..It took 2 coats but they look amazing !


 
 
 
 

You can see the ugly fabric that used to cover the seats in this photo.. She used a soft paisley print that has a couple colors of aqua, light greens and tan..The fabric came from Joann Fabrics. For the chairs , the paint and the fabric it was under $90.00 ..


 
 
This is the table that she will use with the chairs. We got this oak table at a different church rummage sale and painted it off white.. I will show more photos of her dining are when she gets settled in. There is some work to be done in her new house.. she's putting wood floors in , and she needs a new sliding glass door and of course painting the walls and trim.
 
 
I am working on the August Country Cottage Needleworks cottage .. Love how it looks on the evenweave fabric .. so glad I took the plunge !

Hi Priscilla,
Thanks for visiting and leaving your comment about the burlap topiary. Your daughter's chairs are so pretty with the greens and blue colors. I am still amazed with the ability of paint to transform anything!
