Painted Chairs

I showed a picture a couple weeks ago where of a chair with primer on it well today I got the robin egg blue paint on it and it dried very quick since it is so hot here today. I had bought some liquid silver leaf to add to it but think I have changed my mind what do you think ? since it doesn't have any ornate pieces to really high light with silver leaf?

before pictures with the green cloth seat and it has primer on it here


OK finished painted baby blue or robin egg blue I bought a can of paint somewhere just said blue , it was $1.00

can't really see it very good outside so I brought it in and took a picture

this is downstairs where my studio is and I already have a white chair similar to this one I painted white and I have another one I am going to paint pink   to set around one of my work tables    .
looks more blue to me inside  


this one is already painted white , of course you can see that LOL

This one will be pink , about the pink in my roses in the back ground

Originally I was going to set the blue chair  in my blue  toile bedroom but it looked good around the round work table in the studio . I need to get a can of primer tomorrow before I start. Hope everyone had a nice Father's Day .    
Now that I look at this not very interesting just pictures of chairs , LOL oh well

  1. The robin's egg blue is so pretty on your chair...really lovely!

  2. Hello:
    We think that it looks wonderful as it is - absolutely no need for anything else to be added. We do like the idea of all the different coloured chairs around your work table.

  3. very pretty!
    i can't help but notice your printed area rug--i like it.:p

  9. Oh I love these chairs. Where in the world do you find them. Nothing here that isn't an arm and a leg so I don't have any. They look fabulous painted. Great job. Hugs, Marty

  11. Thank you so much for visiting me and leaving such a sweet note about out buttercup retro appliances. I have enjoyed my visit with you today and have read many of your posts. I am now your newest followers.
    You had asked about my center island, it was the bottom to my parents hutch and is 36 years old, it was a dark walnut. I painted it and changed out the knobs then had the butcher block counter top cut to size and mounted.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth
