Decoupage a Chair | DIY Project

(above image via: here.)

Isn't that chair pretty? Want to make one of your own? This is a perfect DIY-project to commence the summer!

All you need is:
  • a plain-jane wooden chair (you can find these for free in a family member's basement or score one for super cheap at a garage sale or consignment shop.)
  • some sandpaper
  • white latex primer
  • rust paint in a color that coordinates with the paper you'll be decoupaging
  • patterned paper (wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, and even magazine scraps are ideal for decoupaging.)
  • water-based sealant glue (mod podge!)
  • a foam brush and old credit card
  • polycrylic water-based protective finish in clear satin
This is as easy, fun, and pretty as DIY projects come. Chairs are an essential piece of furniture. Make one for your desk. Or do four for your dining room table.

  4. I agree with the previous comments. The floral chair is very striking indeed. I love the idea of painting it with different colors of flowers. This is a perfect chair design for individuals who work while maintaining their quality of being stylish at the same time.
