Windsor Chair Makeover With Prima

Windsor chairs have been around since the 16th century. And, chances are, we've all owned one at some point. I can't even count how many I've painted in my lifetime.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this typical Windsor chair and try out some new products from Re*design With Prima.

 I first gave the chair 2 coats of the color, Driftwood, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
 I was excited to try out the Stick & Style Stencil Roll.
 I cut off a piece of the stencil and placed it along one side of the chair seat. The stencil has an adhesive back so it easily stays in place.
 Because it is made of a vinyl material, I was able to easily cut it and place it around the chair spindles.
 I went over the stencil with the color, Drop Cloth. Because of the adhesive back, I didn't have any problems with the paint bleeding under the stencil. I did go over the edge in a couple of places, but touched that up with the Driftwood.

 I continued this pattern on the top of the chair.
 Once the paint was dry, I added 2 image transfers from Prima.

 I don't think the Windsor chairs of the 16th century looked like this!

A great thing about the Stick & Style Stencil Roll is that you can use it over and over. I'm not sure how many times you can reuse it...probably until the sticky starts to wear off.
Here's a little Valentine project I did using the same piece of the roll that I used on the chair. I placed it on a canvas then peeled it up and re-positioned it over and over until I had covered the canvas with the design.

And, while I'm sharing other projects, here's a sweet little table that I painted and added another Prima transfer to...
I think I'll be in a stenciling & image transfer phase for quite awhile!

  1. I've had many of those chairs, too! I think we gave away six of them when we got rid of our old kitchen table lol. Yours looks so much better! Those stencils really seem great. I love that they are adhesive. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen
