Summer is the perfect time to tackle a painting project! A fresh coat of paint can do wonders to an old piece of furniture.
While visiting my boyfriend’s parent’s cottage, this wooden antique chair caught my eye. It was sitting oh-so-inconspicuously in the corner of one of the guest bedrooms. I love its classic shape with the windsor carved legs and backrest. Lucky us, his parents let us give this little chair a new home. Me and my boyfriend have started collecting interesting furniture pieces and I thought he would look great with our salvaged wood crate and antique trunk in my living room. But first, a fresh coat of colored paint!
Here’s a photo of the original wood stained chair.
The great thing about painting, is you don’t need many tools. When it comes down to it, all you really need is paint and brushes. But to do the job right make sure you have the rest of these tools and materials.

Now that I’ve painted one thing, I’ve been bitten by the painting bug and I just want to paint everything! Picture frames, patio furniture, it’s such an easy way to give a fresh look to old objects.
