Like everyone else, I'm feeling the utter grayness of winter. I went a little crazy trying to brighten our dining room today. I've been meaning to paint these chairs for a while now. Like the table they came with, their finish was chipping and peeling unattractively. I rubbed a thin layer of green paint on with a paper towel. Then I used some butter yellow on top, again with a paper towel. I'm low-tech!
I thought I would swoop some color around for highlights, then blend it into the yellow.
Only I liked the raw color so much, I left it in bold streaks.
I'm pretty sure my husband won't get it, but I think it adds a fun, artsy touch to an otherwise drab room. Right now I better get the staple gun and recover the chair seats.
