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.
