Painted Treasures

Hey guys!  How have you been?  Did you have a great summer?

I can't believe summer is officially over!  Yikes!  Where has this year gone?

I guess I took sort of an unplanned hiatus from blogging.  I'll explain more later, but for now I'm back with a new obsession!

My best friend and I recently decided to try our hands at painting furniture. 

We've been scouring yard sales, thrift shops, and even roadsides for furniture that needed a little love.  It's so much fun bringing new life to someone else's tossed aside treasures!

I wanted to show you this child's booster chair that I found at a local thrift shop.  

This is the before...

I painted the chair a pale sage green DIY chalk paint.

  Then I applied a vinyl stencil that I made with my Silhouette.  I painted the stencil on with a soft white acrylic paint.

  Once everything was dry, I sanded the chair with 100 grit sand paper.  I applied some finishing wax to protect the paint.

Here's the after...

I love it!  What do you think?
