Can we just talk about that chair color for a second? You all know I am a neutrals girl when it comes to decorating my house, so a color like this is WAY outside my comfort zone generally. I think my mint desk in the office is just about the only real pop of color to be found! But I tend to feel a little more playful when it comes to outdoor decor, and that is exactly what I had in mind for this gorgeous chair.

There’s a house I drive by sometimes that has the cutest old chair in the front yard sitting next to a tree. The paint is all chipped away, the seat is nearly falling apart, and it looks like it has been out there for decades. Every time I drive by that house, I can’t help but think how cute the chair would be with a little potted plant sitting on the seat or a wreath tied to the back for the holidays. I decided it was time to have a cute outdoor chair of my own!

I recently picked up an old wood chair for about $15 and gave it a gorgeous antique finish with a bright pop of color. I wanted my chair to look just as old and weathered as the chair that inspired me, so today I’m going to share exactly what I did to achieve this beautifully aged finish. I’ll list the specific products I used and some will include affiliate links. Thank you for helping support our blog!

This project has been a TOTAL lifesaver for me, guys! But before we jump into that, let me backtrack a little bit. So last summer I started a giant makeover on my office, and you may have noticed that I never really tied up all the loose ends on that makeover. That happened for a couple reasons: 1) I had one last MASSIVE piece of furniture to paint, and spray paint season unfortunately came to an end. Darn you, winter! I had to patiently wait … [Continue reading...]
