Painted Stripe Chair

The is no question that paint can work a miracle when it comes to updating a wall or piece of furniture, but what about upholstery?

Roeshel from The DIY Showoff shows it can be done!

She toned down a pair of brightly-colored arm chairs from the thrift store with some watered- down latex paint.

Roeshel finished off the amazing transformation with a brown stripe to add some interest.

The inspiration for the brown stripe on Roeshel’s chairs came from the Bark Miramar Racing Stripe Chair from Serena & Lily.

Check out the entire transformation at The DIY Showoff.

Just wondering did you have to seal these with anything-wondering the paint dusted off onto clothes?

Hey Sonja, Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I believe Roeshel said in her post that they didn't plan to sit in the chairs much, so I am not sure if this is an issue. If you don't hear back from Roeshel here, try contacting her directly at her site.
