Good Will Chair Makeover

If you are looking for a quick DIY project, look no further. Makeover an old chair.

I recently found this old wooden chair for around $3 at Good Will.  I've used it in its natural state for a while now, in the breakfast nook.

I was drawn to it because of its unusual seat.  See the holes?

Sometimes, I just want to do a quick project, and this was that kind of day, so I got busy today and painted it.  I had some left over paint from my front door project, in Wythe Blue by Benjamin Moore.

I used this photo from Pinterest as my inspiration.

I recently found a book of floral stickers at GW as well.

I used antique copper metallic paint to cover the nail heads on the seat, and placed the sticker at the top.

 Using a sanding block, the chair was distressed.

But after looking at it with the sticker for a few hours, I didn't like the way it looked.  I found a rose graphic at The Graphics Fairy, and proceeded to transfer it to the chair by using the decopage transfer method.  You can find how to do that by googling, decopage transfer method.
