DIY painted pastel wooden chair

With all those pretty pictures of pastel interiors, I got a little bit obsessed with the pastel colored chairs. 
They are so cute and fun that I just couldn't stop wanting one on my own.
It's been forever since I've been to the flea market so last weekend I've decided to go and look for a wooden-to-be-painted chair! Even though it took me couple of hours, it was totally worth it as I ended up having one - in front of me - ready to get it's new pastel life! :)

That's the final result! What do you think? I fell a little bit in love with it ♥


I love how the color turned out. To get this result I mixed pastel green and white paint.




That pink pillow belongs on my new pastel chair ;)
I strongly encourage you to paint one, it's fun, easy and the effect is guaranteed!

You will need:

3. Acrylic paints

How to do it? 

Clean your chair before applying paint and then paint it twice. 
Wait for it to dry and enjoy!


Ta daaaa!

  3. It is so pretty! I have such a soft spot for pastels... our first little house was pretty much all Martha Stewart style pastels - brings back fond memories:) Thanks for sharing it!
