Take A Dip Into Color!



I recently made over a Craigslist dining table and 6 chairs.  If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard me complain about stripping, sanding and painting coat after coat of paint on 6 chairs.  

I shouted more than once to my husband: "I don't care if these chairs suck, we are keeping them FOREVER.  Our grand-kids grand-kids will be sitting on these chairs..."  But you still should totally follow me, because I rarely complain and I am awesome.

However, this is not my dining set reveal, this is my little dip into color and a tease of the dining furniture makeover. The full makeover is now updated complete with tutorial- 6 chars and a pedestal dining table!


Venturing out of my usual white shabby chic look, I decided to add a little color to the chairs using some spray paint.  I had seen the look on some design sites and thought it might be fun to try and easy to fix if I did not like it. 

Full reveal to follow later this month. Unfortunately, I live in one of the areas hit by the storm that left us without power.  I escaped on Day 3 of no power to my inlaws, so I was unable to finish all the pictures for the full reveal!  


Supplies:
Spray Paint
Painters Tape
Measuring Tape



The VERY Easy Directions: Mark off your desired measurement and place tape around it.  (I chose 4 inches)
Spray Paint
Wait to dry, add another coat if desired.






What do u think? Yay or nay?
