My Happy Chair

Hello!! It is one of my hearts desires to fill my house with happy, brightly painted furniture. Here is an ugly kitchen chair makeover that I did recently. ("before" photo posted below) Many many hours were spent on this and there is still another one to do. No sanding or stripping required though! First I put on a couple of coats of Deco Art Americana Decor Chalky Paint in white http://www.decoart.com/chalkyfinish/. All the colored paint is Americana acrylic craft paint and the colored dots and flowers are hand punched from paper. I would love to see any ugly chair or other furniture makeovers that you have done. Post a picture in the comments if you want to share :) Loving my Happy chair!!

  3. Fabulous! When you say "hand punched from paper" for the details do you mean you used a hand punch device to punch the shapes or templates out of paper? If so, how did you apply the painted image or shape to the chair - just by painting through the hole and removing the paper?
