Do you have extra space in your bathroom and nothing to put in it? Fill it up by fixing up that old straight back chair you have in the shed.
Its easy to decorate an old chair and make it turn into the talk of time. Take the old chair or bench you have in the shed; go to the thrift shop, goodwill store or even to a yard sale. Sometimes you can buy the old chairs very cheap. People are always setting their old kitchen chairs on the curb, stop and ask if you can have it; theyll probably give it to you instead of the garbage man.
How to choose your pattern?
Decide first what decor and colors you’re going to use. Be sure to go along with what you have already in there. If you own birds, you can place a birdhouse on your chair. Be creative and think about it before starting your new project. People will notice it everytime they go into the bathroom. Besides filing up an empty spot, you can use it at the same time to put your socks on. Getting out of the shower or tub, a chair comes in handy to sit on while putting on your shoes or even while drying your feet off. Decorating is easy and fun and youll be proud of what you have accomplished.
When redoing a chair or bench you first need a theme, decide on the colors and then get to work.
How to remove paint?
All that old paint or varnish needs to be removed. You can find paint and varnish at most stores where paint is sold. After all, after the old paint is removed, sand it down to smooth out the nick and scratches.
The paint on the chair itself needs to be enamel so the moisture can be wiped off easily. Paint your chair; making sure, you use small amounts on the brush to keep it from running and making streaks in the paint when it dries. Let it dry for a couple of days before doing anything more to it.
How to choose additional bathroom accessories for your chair:
You can purchase stencils; rubber stamps or even draw where you want to put a flower or etc. on it. Using ceramic paint in the color or shade of your choice put your design on it. Make it simple but colorful and be creative. You can buy ceramic paint and the brushes to use in any department store that sells craft supplies. When choosing your colors make sure the shades blend in with what you already have on the walls.
When your chair or bench is done stand back and view what you have accomplished. It will surprise you how creative you can be and it is fun too.
