Little white chair

A friend of mine is revamping and reorganizing her kids' rooms. So she's been on the lookout for a little chair to use in her daughter's rooms. She came across this perfect little one at the Goodwill the other day (careful Linds...it's addicting!) and asked for my help in the paint department.


We used one my favorites for the color (Rustoleum Heirloom White) and then shabbied it up with some sandpaper.

The only problem . . . now I want one :)

Wow! You are fast! Last I heard, she didn't even have a chair picked out. Very nice work! :)

Hello! Thanks for commenting on my blog. You asked about the coffee staining and the hangtags. I'll reply here 'cause I couldn't find your email. Basically, I dunked the manilla tags (which I got at the office supply store) in the coffee that was leftover in my coffee pot. I didn't let them soak too long (maybe a minute) because I'm too impatient! And, I was afraid they'd get too soggy and start to split. Then I placed them single layer on a cookie sheet. Oven temps will vary, I think I started around 200-250 and then turned it up to about 325 when mine weren't getting brown enough to suit me. You'll just need to experiment as far as how long to leave them in the oven. I think I left mine in around 15 minutes or so. The longer they stay in, the more dark and crunchy they get. I think I took mine out of the oven a few times during the baking to squirt some water on them to give it an interesting look to it. Or just let drops of water fall from your fingertips for more precision. Whatever your preference. Just experiment and have fun! Thanks again! I'm off to peek at your blog now! Hope this was helpful. Hmmmm....gives me a though...maybe I should make more, take pics of the process, and do a tutorial? =)

Now I will need your help to redoing that table and chairs I have for Annalee. Do you have special spray painting tips?
