Aztec Inspired Vintage Chair Restoration
If it isn't clear yet, i may have a bit of a chair obsession. Of all the furniture items i have collected, chairs are my favorite to restore. I don't know why...maybe it's just because they're the easiest to fit in the back of my Nissan Versa, but regardless, I've made over a LOT of chairs.
Feast your eyes on this bad boy. My mom brought it by my house a few months ago after picking it up at a garage sale. Unfortunately, it was a mere 2 weeks before we moved into our new house, so it was promptly packed up and stored in the garage and hasn't seen the light of day since. The Vintage Market is coming up this weekend and theres nothing quite like a deadline to light a fire under a crafter's butt.
With this flip, I went ahead and painted it a very light grayish-blue. The paint is flat which I think gives it a soft a sweet look. The curves of this chair that make it so interesting and pretty are also what make it really difficult and time-consuming to paint.
I covered the chair using the same technique that I did in my last Vintage Chair Makeover. I'm so in love with this kinda aztec-inspired print that I found a yard of at Michael's. It gives the chair so much pop and personality and I feel it's going to bring so much joy and light into someone else's home.
If you're in the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area this weekend, you can find this project for sale at The Vintage Market on Saturday at The Makery booth! Can't wait to see you there!
