Blue Chair

Thanks to all of you blue and non-blue lovers out there for telling me to use it.  My first project was a little chair that sits next to the bed in the guest room.  It is opposite the fan that inspired the blue.


I bought a few bottles of blue paint that had the tint I was going for and added a little black to darken it up a bit.


My chair started out looking like this.

I don’t know what I was thinking when I stamped the top of the chair or glued the ribbon to the edges.  I had to remove the hot glue with a razor blade.

I haphazardly slapped some paint onto the chair and then sanded it a bit.  I put it back in the room and was thrilled it matched the fan so well.  Smile


I am going to look for fabric today to make one big pillow where there are 2 small square pillows on the bed.  I have to take my son fabric shopping.  He disliked his choir class so much he joined home economics.  He has to sew a snuggie.  I giggle every time I think about it.

Here is a close up of the chair.  When I got it long ago it was missing a seat so my husband just cut a piece of plywood and made a seat for it.






What do you think?  Do you like the new touches of blue?
