Whenever you see posts with sneak peeks into our home decor, you can tell that I’m not afraid of a little color.
Whether it is transforming my daughter’s wall into a modern art masterpiece…
or adding a statement with this painted wood grain wall art.
And I don’t limit my color accents to walls or art. When I recently found this vintage school chair at a garage sale, I grabbed it up knowing that I could transform it into a cool modern chic piece of colorful furniture.
One of my favorite paint lines that I use for home decor projects is high gloss paint. I used Americana Decor® MAXX GLOSS™ in Aqua Waters for this upcycle DIY project.
What I love about this paint is that there is no priming necessary, it goes on almost every surface, the colors are vibrant, and most importantly they dry with a beautiful high gloss finish.
After I washed off the metal portion of my vintage school chair, I placed it on a paper drop cloth and got to work. I applied two coats of paint using a simple sponge brush.
Seriously, that’s all I needed—one jar of paint and a sponge brush.
This already cute chair went from ordinary to fabulous in just a couple of hours!
I love how this turned out! It is my daughter’s favorite homework chair now. = )
