A couple of weeks ago I found these amazing antique Duncan Phyfe chairs. They are petite & have beautiful carved flowers on the top & nice curvy legs on the bottom, so much potential. Here is the before picture.
As you can see, there are three armless chairs & one captains chair.
Michigan has been blessed with an early spring this year, so to celebrate I decided to paint them a nice spring yellow (plus I already had yellow on hand). So I gave them two coats of DIY chalk paint in this spring yellow. Not an easy chore painting these by hand. I am hoping to purchase a sprayer this summer, then maybe painting chairs won't be such a pain.
After painting I distressed, waxed & buffed to perfection. I chose a nice vintage looking fabric & my mom had the cushions redone in record time.
Here's what they look like now.
Perfect for spring!
Love that beautiful detail.
I love the girly fabric with those sexy legs. Shabbylishious!!
These chairs are available at "V Trading" in Grand Blanc, MI if you would like to see them in person. So has spring inspired your color choice? Thanks for visiting & have a great day! Dee
