When I decided I was going to move into an apartment for this school year, I knew I was going to need to source out some furniture. My mom and I went “garage-saleing” (technical term 😉 ) several times over the summer, and I was able to find some great pieces. At one sale I found two cute kitchen chairs. I loved the shape, but wasn’t crazy about the finish and thought they might lend themselves well to a fun coat of paint. I bought them for $5 each, and tried to come up with the perfect color to paint them.
A minty aqua blue came to mind, and I headed to the hardware store in search of the perfect paint. My mom and I came across an interesting paint and primer spray paint combination in the perfect color, so I decided to give it a try. I love how easy the paint was to use, and I also love the finished look of the chairs!
They bring a little bit of color and fun into our dining space which always brightens up my day. There’s still tons to do around here to make it more homey, but I think these chairs were a good start. 🙂
Do you have any furniture in fun colors? Have you ever redone or painted an old piece of furniture? I’d love to hear about it!
