Scrounge Hound back again! Ever rescued an old chair and tried to figure out what to do with it? Well here's an idea.
I chose to use bright yellow paint for this chair. I lightly sanded the chair and added yellow paint to the chair. I didn't use a paintbrush this time. I used an old rag and watered down paint to keep the vintage patina. I left the many coats of paint underneath visible, I am fond of a chair with history. The shabbier, the better.
Decoupage: From my magazines, Country Living and BH&G, I cut out various Sunflower images to brighten the seat bottom. Modge Podge is my decoupage glue of choice. So I adhered the flower images to the seat bottom. Then, I added MANY coats of Modge Podge over the seat bottom, including the images.

This chair is one of my favorites, I love everything about it....the lines, the rough patina, the nicks and dents, and especially the BRIGHT COLOR!!!
Recently, I rescued some Vintage Queen Ann chairs....can't wait to tackle those!
Hope you enjoyed this chair segment....Scrounge Hound. I always welcome comments!
