Blue Striped Chairs

chair makeover, Krylon Chalky Spray paint
A project from December left in the camera.

These blue striped chairs.

Decades ago these two were used in our breakfast room. 

Ended up hiding in the deep recesses of the attic.

Removed the seats and scrubbed them well.

Legs in the air on the painting frame.

A couple of coats of Krylon Chalky finish paint.

Now Chucks knows I NEVER make mistakes.

(That I would admit!)

However for some strange reason my painting elf did not put a drop cloth under the chairs,

Yes, there is paint all over part of the driveway.

Which Chucks points out every time we walk to the car.

I just do not understand how it got there.

The blue striped fabric was in my stash.

The chairs even with their makeover have not sold.

Make me an offer.

I want them to find a good home.

See y'all!

  1. Those will sell! They are too cute and perfect to sit (pun intended).


  2. They are cute! Someone will make them a happy home I'm sure! Oh paint on the driveway how did that happen???? :)


  3. Oh, I love the makeover! It's perfect...and inspirational. I'll probably wait until summer to do any painting, but the difference in your before and after chairs is good motivation.

  4. I can't believe they haven't sold yet, they are wonderful!!

  5. I WISH I was close enough to make you an offer. The shipping would probably be more than the chairs. Awesome job! I can't believe they are still there. I would certainly like them in my bedroom sitting area if nothing but for show. Pretty, pretty!

  6. The chairs are adorable and love them with the blue stripping.....someone will be quite lucky to find them..

  7. Love the blue and white stripe. So fresh looking. This is an amazing transformation.

  8. The right person just hasn't come along yet! They are pretty and will be perfect for that right person.

  9. Love the chairs...I can so relate to the hubby's remarks....my painting elf forgets to put a drop cloth down lots of times too... I am sure the chairs will go to a good home real soon. Blessings!

  10. If the chairs haven't sold yet, you might want to add a stencil to the back — either a french-theme something from The Graphics Fairy or maybe even a bird (like what's on the side table!). I'm sure you could find something that you thought would be appropriate. I like them. I'm too far away to like them!

  11. Love the gray color and those blue stripes! Perfect set of chairs!! The table is so cute!!

  12. Love them; super cute!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  13. I'm surprised they have not sold. They turned out cute and I like the stripes.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

  14. I'm suprised they haven't found a new home yet, they are so cute, so coastal with their blue stripes!

  15. I love what you've done with these sweet chairs! I can't believe someone didn't scoop them up! I hope you have a great day!

  16. Donna, these chairs look fab. Sometimes it just never makes sense to me why things remain, when others go out the door. My husband always says it's price (to me that translates, giving it away too cheap), but when you've put your labor into it, I'll be the last to give that away with a low price.

  17. Great makeover, Donna; I predict they will sell soon :) Thanks for linking up your project at Vintage Charm. So nice to have you back!
