Which shade of turquoise was proving to be a bigger decision than this indecisive person could manage. Here is where I left the chairs in January of this year...and about 10 months later inspiration came!
Jaime, from wellnessandfamily.blogspot.com shared her gorgeous spray painted teal dining chairs. I was IN LOVE with the red peek-a-booing from under the teal and knew this is what my dining room needed.
my turquoise chairs
Spray Painted with Kilz Primer (not pictured)
First Coat: Acrylic Paint in Berry Red
Second Coat of Paint: Tratorria Teal by Behr
only one coat of paint sloppily applied---eliminated the need to sand
(I detest sanding and avoid it when possible.)
This is the same color I used on my fence piece bookshelf.
Sealed with a can of Polycrylic that I picked up FOR FREE from my local Hazmat disposal site. It was 80% full. SCORE!
I just adore how the berry red peek-a-boos thru the turquoise blue. *love*
The Breakfast Nook
Would you like to come over for a cup of tea?
Or coffee. We have that in abundance.
The orange frame isn't really as orange as it looks in these photos. A less neon photo can be seen here. In reality, its more of an orange red.
I wasn't sure if I'd like the cardboard barn star against the chocolate brown of the wall, but the metallic paint helps it hold its own.
And I have to brag on my turquoise trees painting. Coupled with the chairs it adds some much needed color to the room.
