School Chair Makeover

Little chairs for two cute little boys!  I bought a couple old school chairs at a garage sale a few years ago and  fixed them up and painted them red.  Fast forward to this year, I was ready for a change and tired of the red so I went with a nice oxford blue.  Perfect for my blue eyed boys!

Initially when I bought the chairs I had to repair one of the seats, tighten the legs and sand the chairs.  I used some wood glue for the seat repair, then sanded, primed and painted them red.  After a few years the red was starting to fade, so I decided it would be a good time to paint them again.  I sanded and primed them, back when I was working on my green chairs and mini bench.  I figured I might as well do them all together and save myself a little time.  After I sanded and primed the chairs, I sprayed about 6 light coats of Krylon's Oxford Blue, then finished with a few light coats of Rust-Oleum's clear gloss.  



The boys enjoy having their own seats and I think they look cute on the front porch.  I've been toying with the idea of painting our front door for quite some time, but I can't commit to a color.  Any color ideas for a beige house with white trim?  I don't want a red door.  I've been thinking navy recently, but I like bright colors.  I am so indecisive.


Love his blue eyes!

Happy Champagne Thursday!
