They called the chair the “split personality” chair. How fitting, right?! I instantly took a liking to the technique they used on the chair and I’m sure you all have seen the “dipped” chairs. For days after first coming across the chair, I kept wondering why I loved it so much. I mean, like I said, we have all seen chairs that have been partially painted before. Why did this one stand out to me?
I decided to recreate that technique, but while doing so, I went a different way. I started with this chair
I decided on how much of it I wanted to paint and pondered on a color.
(I must give a shout out to Kristen F. Davis for the paint! She’s the new spokeswoman for the MyColor paint line!!!)
I decided on yellow because I had never used yellow on a piece for myself.
(I have yet to replace the batteries in my camera. sorry for iPhone pic)
I’m in love with this chair. I had originally planned not to distress the painted portion, but as I kept looking at it, I couldn’t resist. When I look at this chair, I think of myself. It’s a reflection of where I started in life and where I am now. Even with its pretty little pop of yellow, underneath that is still that country old chair. This chair is a reminder for me to stay grounded. No matter how successful one becomes, you should never forget how you started out.
I’m sharing this over at Miss Mustard Seed’s linky party!
I’ll see you guys next week!
