It's yard sale season! Here in the South you can find a yard sale almost any weekend year 'round, but Spring & Summer are jam packed with them.
I recently picked this chair up at a yard sale given by a woman who owns an antique store. The veneer on the back was missing, but I didn't mind because I was planning to paint it anyway.
While I was paying, another woman who is a vendor at the antique store that the other lady owns, told me that she had the same chair at her house and she'd be happy to sell it at the same price. I said, "sold" so she ran home and got it. It had some of the veneer on the back, but it was in bad shape!
I removed all the veneer...
I painted each chair with the color Vintage Duck Egg from the Dixie Belle Paint Company and glazed them with the color Van Dyke Brown. I recovered each seat with fabric that I had in my attic.
I was excited to try out the Re*Design With Prima image transfers on my freshly painted chairs.
This set of transfers included 8 designs. I took this one and cut the flower into two parts and also cut the words into two sections.
The transfers are so easy to use... just place the design onto the painted surface and rub with an applicator provided with the transfer.
Doing this made the chairs match but not be exactly the same.
Reunited and it feels so good!
