Paisley's Chair *** Refinished Yard Sale Find***

 CLICK  the image to enlarge

Finding the right color of paint for the chair was easy. On a trip to Lowe's with my Husband we walked past the Valspar paint and I saw the pretty sample jars of paint...
CLICK the jar of paint to see Lowe's selection.....some pretty colors !
When using the paint, pour the paint into another container.
 If you paint out to the jar paint gets on the rim and the lid
 won't fit. I didn't use 1/3 of the jar.

Designing the right graphic to decoupage onto the chair was my next challenge..... 

if you would like me create a personalized graphic for decoupage (downloadable)
PLEASE contact me
I have used this little fairy in a tea cup in some of my designs.....her colors and roses were just the look I wanted to create..
I printed my graphic on tracing paper. If you've used tracing paper you know it's flimsy, so first I sprayed a piece of card stock with  Krylon Easy-Tack Repositionable Adhesive 7020
Carefully laid the tracing paper on the tacky card stock....printed.
When I cut out the graphic I left it on the card stock. As I got ready to apply the decoupage, I pealed it off the card stock. This worked really good.

After the decoupage was done, I gave it time to dry and  added an antique glaze .

This chair is so cute. Thank you for the tip on using tracing paper....can't wait to try it. I've been using plain paper, but didn't like the effect it left.
