I found these chairs at a yardsale for $2.50 a piece. They were a light wood color and the canvas fabric was tan. I primed and then painted them heirloom white by Rustoleum. One chair was missing the back so I used canvas drop cloth to make a new one. I just looked at the back of the chair that I did have and sewed a new one.

I wanted a light blue color, so I used a Benjamin Moore paint sample in Gossamer Blue. It took two samples. I mixed the acrylic paint with fabric medium: 2 parts paint to 1 part medium, then painted on (2 coats). Let the coats dry in between. Heat set each coat by drying your fabric with a hair dryer.

So, there you have it. It only took me $5 to create these super cool movie star chairs! Don’t forget, you can find amazing deals at garage sales and thrift stores!

Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
