Upcycled Garage Sale Chair With Stenciled Wedding Ring Quilt Pattern


My husband picked up this little wooden dining chair a few years ago.  He thought it could be used as a desk chair in our daughter's apartment.

She ended up using another chair, and this one has been tucked in a closet.  Time for a makeover...

I brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth 

I used my Zibra 1-Inch Square Paint Brush on the legs and spindles, (it works so well on spindles), and my Zibra 2-Inch Stubby Handle Paint Brush on the larger chair areas.

Zibra brushes have become my favorite for an almost brush stroke free paint finish.

This is the chair after two coats of paint.

I live in a very small town with limited shopping.  When I hit larger cities, I always visit Joann Fabrics, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby.

And I always check out the stencils.  I found this package of Artminds 26 paper pattern stencils at a Michael's store.

They are out of stock online, but you can check for availability at stores.  They are very similar to the Folkart Value Paper Stencil packs.  You have to punch/press them out on the perforated areas.

This wedding ring quilt pattern stencil was in the packet.

I thought it might be fun on the chair seat.

The differences in Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Bunker Hill Blue, and Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Yankee Blue are very subtle on my chair seat.

I used Yankee Blue to stencil the rings, except for the areas of ring intersections.  The intersections were stenciled with Bunker Hill Blue.

I will say, in person, the Yankee Blue looks more of a blue/gray, and Bunker Hill has a more cobalt blue hue.

"Love" was added using my DecoArt Americana Decor Stencil - Inspiration, and Ceramcoat black craft paint.

I left the chair without any distressing, and waxed it with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear.  I used Intex Pfc- Precision-fiber Paint & Cleaning Rags to apply the water based wax and rub it down after the wax was dry.

I envisioned this chair in a bedroom for putting on socks and shoes, and just for looks too!

  2. Carlene, I love the way you changed the whole look of that chair from boring to beautiful! Using the two different colors of blue gives it just the subtle touch of interest it needed, too.
    It's just cute as can be now and could be used in a variety of different settings.

    I really have to get some of the Dixie Belle paints to try. I have little rustic-styled bench that I use for a coffee table that I want to paint and I'm thinking that it would be a good project to try the paints on.
