Chair Makeover with Swirl Design

Mel from Junkin’ Junky found a set of four chairs at Goodwill for only $5 a piece. While the price was awesome, the chairs… not so much. Mel describes them as boring with a brown finish that scratched easily. She was inspired to update the color to a pretty blue and then add pizzazz with a vinyl swirl design. Talk about a transformation from brown and boring to blue and bold!

Mel was inspired by this Scoop-Back Chair from West Elm.

Great idea, Karen. I tend to forget that not everyone has visited my blog and knows how I do things. I've done so many projects where I added some flair with vinyl cut outs, that I worry that I would bore others if I were to post, yet again, how I did it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Why don't you show how you made these beautiful chairs and what type of paint or decals you used?
