A Painted Chair 

Back in December, I painted this old chair at Amanda Skipsey’s workshop in Rhayader.

The background colour is chalk paint and the details are acrylic. Amanda was very patient with me when I needed to get the shapes and she painted a chair herself at the same time. There are no stencils involved, this was freehand.

If you compare mine & her’s, well there’s no competition but I’m thrilled with it. And it’s the start of more furniture painting for me. Seems like a fun way to upcycle to me .

Thanks for dropping by,

Happy New Year

  3. That’s so cute! You did a really good job painting it freehand. I haven’t painted in years so I imagine mine would be dreadful. xx

  5. Great upcycle! My sister does great fabric decoupage chairs and they are a delight too. Such a cool way to give old furniture new life.
