The 4th of July will be here in a couple weeks, and there’s still plenty of time to work on some patriotic projects! I bought this chair at a yard sale a few weeks back and I knew right away what I wanted to do with it. Sometimes inspiration takes its sweet time and sometimes it hits you all of a sudden like a water balloon in the back!
The wood slats on the seat were perfect for some red and white stripes reminiscent of the American flag.
For this chair makeover I used Old White Chalk Paint, Valspar Indigo Cloth and Posh Red (inexpensive paint samples from Lowe’s), Annie Sloan clear wax, and FrogTape. I already had all of these items at home.
I started by painting the frame blue and then taping the seat so I could paint the red and white stripes.
See my FrogTape under the chair? I accidentally left it there and Abby (our boxer) got ahold of it when I ran an errand. Luckily it wasn’t too shredded by the time I got home!
After I finished painting I did some light sanding to distress it and then protected it with clear wax.
I also made this mini garland out of twine and washi tape. It was so easy! Just fold washi tape over twine and snip the end to make a point. It’s the perfect accessory for any 4th of July vignette or a patriotic photo shoot. 😉
Have a fabulous weekend!
