Damask Design Chair with Matching Pillow

Hi, Froggers! It's 9:10 PM and I JUST sat down for the day. I'll keep this brief.
Here's the newest addition to my space at Building Character!
As I often forget, there's no before pic. Just imagine an ugly dark green thing with a very dirty fabric on the seat. I stripped the seat (that just sounds wrong), re-padded it, and covered it with our trusty ol' drop cloth fabric.

I painted her with ASCP Old White, but she needed a little something more, thus the damask design from the Graphics Fairy. I cut the threesome in vinyl, weeded out the "inerds", placed it on my chair, and very lightly stenciled with a dry brush.

Here are the designs up close, with a little distressing after waxing with clear Briwax.

When I sanded it, a beautiful shiny gold color showed up. Yipee! It was under the ugly green stuff. Yup folks! It doesn't get better than that!

Of course, it needed a matching pillow. I made this with a drop cloth, cut the design out of Grafix craft plastic, and stenciled with a VERY dry brush. Pouncing only, Peeps!

I was kinda tickled with the twosome.
And now, I'm making some popcorn and watching Parks and Rec!
Fondly, Tami

  1. I love this chair and pillow. The stencil really makes it. I am so bad at stencilling, but I'm always attracted to it! Great job and you're right....the gold underneath....bonus!

  2. Your chair and pillow are so pretty. Your stenciling adds the perfect touch!

  3. Your chair is so cute, and I love the stencil across the top. It really adds such charm, and the pillow sets it off. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best!

  4. Gotta love the transforming power of paint!

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday.
