Vintage Child's Folding Chair Stenciled with an Argyle Pattern

I purchased this cute little vintage child's folding chair at a local antiques/consignment shop for $8.

The paint had some scratching and scrapes, but I didn't repaint it.


I decided to try the new *Argyle stencil from Old Sign Stencils on the chair.

Argyle is a two piece stencil that comes in two sizes.

 The stencil is a little big for the chair seat, but I managed to tape it in the front and back to the seat front and back with blue painter's tape.

The right and left sides were not taped down, and I held the stencil down tight with my left hand's fingers to pounce the edges.

 I alternated Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Hurricane Gray and Caviar diamond columns.

I used a smaller/narrower stencil brush to stencil in the close diamond points.

The arrows are pointing to the diamonds that I will line up with the second stencil's registration marks.

I stenciled the fine top lines using Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth.  I very, very lightly distressed the stenciling with 220 grit sandpaper.

I stenciled three diamonds on the chair back,

I sprayed two coats of Krylon Gallery Series Artist and Clear Coatings Aerosol in Satin Finish on the chair to protect the stenciling.

Doesn't the little chair have a retro vibe?

Fun with argyle!

AND, outside on my patio!  It's as cute on the wall as folded down into a seat.

  2. I have got to get that argyle stencil. Love what you did with this folding chair, Carlene! I especially love it painted red, my favorite color. Such a lovely vignette you created around the chair too. Pinned
