No. 22 & 23

I have a prob­lem. I can’t stop accu­mu­lat­ing chairs. I really love them. It is my chance to try a color I may be a weee bit ner­vous to try on a big­ger piece.
So our kitchen chairs were UGLY. They stood out next to our barn wood table and not in a good way. Both free or under $5.…and you can def­i­nitely tell…

So one day I took a sam­ple I had of a suu­u­u­u­u­per dark navy blue (we don’t know why) and just started paint­ing…

it was Nathan’s idea to use the gray from our kitchen walls to add inter­est and there was no room to do the num­bers on the back or sides any­where so I put them on the seat…

OK. So, I really do like them. A lot. BUT, they are TOTALLY BOY chairs.
I call them my vin­tage locker room chairs.
Is that cool for my kitchen? We don’t know.

I think they would be per­fect for a boys room or play room or “man cave” or what­ever you peo­ple call those rooms set apart for your hus­bands.…
Either way, I LOVE THEM, just can’t decide if I want to keep them.

Ok, that is all I have. You may or may not see these up on our shop– ha!
Cheers!

Or maybe they will go in the liv­ing room…

    These are so fun!! Where do you get the sten­cils for the num­bers? Or are they sten­cils?? Been want­ing some letters…

    • Whit­ney– they are just a basic sten­cil you can find at any art sup­ply store…pretty sure these came from AC Moore.

    May I pre­sume to ask the color of navy these have become?  My boys’ room is slowly skew­ing nau­ti­cal locker room, they are ALSO profs of destruc­tion, and I can’t abide most blues…  These chairs look mighty inviting.

       It is called Plan­e­tar­ium by Behr and I put a stained wax fin­ish on top.
