Painted Chair for the Dormer Window

Thank you all so much for your comments and suggestions about the little white chair that sat next to our dormer window. I ultimately decided to distress the heck out of it and add some handpainted flowers. Then sanded over the painting and finished it off with 2 coats of polyurethane.

This is the before picture.

And here are the after pictures, I hope you like the results!

Close up of the seat.

Some readers also thought a little throw blanket might be cute hanging over the back of the chair. I am going to keep my eyes peeled for one. So, what color should I look for? Blue? White? Yellow? or Orange?

  1. REALLY cute! You did such a great job on the chair! I'm thinking orange for the throw blanket! 😉

  2. The chair is adorable! I say orange or blue for the blanket. You are quite the artist ~ if I tried flowers like that, it would look like my 6 year old did it :)

  3. wow i didn't realize how bad the lil chair needed that till you did your magic looks fantastic

  4. Cassie @ Primitive & Proper says:

    i agree with the first two and say orange for the blanket. i actually think it might look cute rolled up and placed in a basket next to the chair so it doesn't hide any of your lovely painting!

  5. A nice happy blue blanket. This is lovely – very sweet and fun.

    I love Cassie's idea of the blanket rolled up in a basket next to the chair…I'm thinking orange or a dark but vibrant yellow.

    Hi Brittany.

    I found your blog by random, and after reading through parts of it, I just realised had to borrow a picture from you and make a note about you on my own blog ;O) Hope that is all right with you.

    I love that you do this to empower and inspire others to start DIY projects of their own!!

    Love, Yvonne

  8. Orange or yellow would pop nicely against those gorgeous blue shutters. Great job!

    Ooooh I like how heavily distressed it is. :)

  10. Love the way the chair looks! The flowers add just the right touch. And the blanket, definitely yellow or orange. Or maybe even something with several colors.
