    Love it! That turned out so amazing, and with such a small investment of time and money! If the weather and my schedule would jive I have a little spray painting of my own I’d like to get done – hope it works out as beautifully as your s did!

    This is just too cute – you picked such a perfect shade! I think I’m gonna go chair hunting. We currently use my fiancé’s drum stool for our computer chair; he loves it, but I hate it! It’s backless, so it’s so uncomfortable, and I’m the only one that really uses the desktop XD The stool is ‘pretty’ at least: sparkly gold and cheetah print, I kid you not XD We have a black computer desk too though, and I just love the super bright cheery color adornment your spruced up chair gives yours. :D

    I also really love your bright white starfish on your desk, really cute decoration. It all goes very well together.

    I saw a set in a neighbors garage just like that. I thought redo & then I see yours now : Is it rude of me to knock & ask if they are selling the set? The things we’ll do for a bargain & craft diy! lol Love how yours turned out! Now just a little cushion to make it comfy! & perfect.

    Linda, I am LOVING your blog – - so much inspiration! I recently got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas from my hubby, and I am so excited to dive into projects. I made an inspiration board on my blog with a few Silhouette projects that have me head over heels, and your easy chair makeover is one of them!

    I just love the contrast of the black vinyl on the bright blue paint. So beautiful!

    So I have a question about your CUTE blue chair! Did you do anything to prep it before painting? Sanding or stripping? I have two of our dining chairs in my craft room and I would LOVE to paint them a fun color!

    What font did you use? I love it!
