Polka Dots Chair


I love polka dots, they are so much fun!!  I love being able to use vinyl for polka dots.  It's super easy and quick and inexpensive.  It's a great way to transform something to plain and make it fabulous!!

Today I am going to show you had I transformed this fun and bright chair.

I got these awesome chairs at a garage sale!  I love the look of them, just not the color.

The first thing I did was take off the seat.  Then I scrubbed it, sanded it and got it ready for painting.

I decided to go with a bright yellow!!  It's so fun and cheery and will be a perfect color for my kitchen.  I spray painted it and let it dry.

As the paint was drying, I cut out the polka dots. Using the circle tool, I made lots of 3/4" circles in Silhouette Studio.

Then I cut it out of the indoor white vinyl.  I totally could have used the outdoor and made it an outdoor chair too!
Photobucket
Just by using my hands, I started placing the polka dots all over the chair.  I was very random when placing them.
Photobucket
Once I placed them everyone, I sprayed it with a clear acrylic glaze, so the dots wouldn't fall off when we move it.
Photobucket
I screwed the seat back onto the chair.  Isn't it so fun now?  I love it!

The back is awesome too!

I'm in love with the polka dots!

So cute. I love polka dots too! I love how you can see something and imagine it's potential. I'm still working on that.

This is adorable! I really need a yellow chair in my house because I love every yellow wooden chair that I see :)

I've used my Silhouette to cut polka dots to decorate a bowl for some seasonal mantel decor. How did I get by without it?

Wow! This is way too cute! My current dining room chairs came from a thrift store and I was really hoping I wouldn’t have to spend money on new furniture. Thanks to your makeover idea, I won’t have to squander my paycheck from Dish on a new set of chairs! Hooray! I was just pining over some boutique chairs I saw on HGTV the other day that looked almost exactly like these. I have a terrible habit of recording almost everything on HGTV and the DIY network to my Hopper DVR, since it makes me want to mimic everything they show! Who knew having a ton of recording space could backfire on me? LOL! I can’t wait to add this to my list of DIY projects. These chairs are sure to make any room happy!
