These old Ikea chairs were sitting around in my storage unit, so when we moved back to Cali recently and could finally fit a table and chairs in our apartment, we decided to spruce ‘em up!
They were four different colors, so we sanded them down to ready them for painting.
I’m sure you know by now that painting things gold is one of my favorite pastimes, so why break with tradition?! Gold it is.
They actually ended up being kind of obnoxious to paint. After trying standard paintbrushes, foam rollers, and nap rollers, we finally found that foam brushes did the trick best. It’s still a little streaky; we may decide to do another coat on top of the two that are already there.
But I kind of love the effect! We’ve got a laid-back California vibe happening in our apartment so far; I love how these fit in. They’re great gathered on one side of our dining table, to balance out the bench on the other. And they look pretty cool on that rug from Urban, too! So, are you as under the spell of gold paint as I am? Painted anything recently? xoxo
