A few years back, I was in love with Monica’s table set on Friends. I loved the multicolored chairs mismatched with the table. Watching Friends again recently, I’ve found I love the whole style of the apartment in general!
Isn’t is so cozy cute?!
I wanted my own shabby chic tablescape! I went to several different antique stores and got a few different sets of chairs. A couple of them were pretty beat up and looked like this:
The most important thing for me when buying chairs is how sturdy they are. I have bought several chairs with loose spindles that are seemingly impossible to fix. (No matter how much nailing, gluing, and clamping you try!) These chairs passed my sturdy test!
In order to paint them, I quickly sanded and cleaned them. I did not use a primer as I didn’t mind if the paint chipped (shabby chic!).
Then, I simply picked out a few sample tubs of Valspar paint and went to town painting! My favorite is the bright blue.
What color would you paint your chairs?
