Vinyl and Spray Paint Wood Chair Makeover

A few months back I was driving down the road and I see this guy putting a bunch of 'stuff' out by the curb with a big sign that said 'FREE!'  The luck!  I quickly pulled over and snagged this wood chair.  It would do until I could find a bench for my front porch.  The chair - just as it was when I threw it in my trunk - has sat on my front porch all winter.

I incorporated it into my Christmas and Valentine's Day porch decor.  She's cute even in all her paint splattered glory, right?

But last week as I was switching over to my spring seasonal decor I decide it was time to give the chair the makeover she least something more than a cute pillow.  This roadkill rescue deserved only the finest makeover...a spray tan can.   Yup, wood chair met black spray paint and all was right with the world.  Here's a closer look at the before...

I have never spray painted furniture before - especially not wood furniture.   Usually I take my time when painting furniture.  I mix up my chalk paint, I hand brush layers of paint and then finish.  Nope, not this beauty.  She got a black spray paint and about 15 minutes of my time.   I like the black paint because it matched my front door so it all seems to just work....but I really did contemplate going with a deep red.

Once the paint was dry I still wasn't done. I wanted to do something fun with her..but what? I didn't want any crazy paint design or anything since I plan to keep the chair on my porch for every season.   I settled on a monogram on the seat of the chair.  Up close it was the perfect touch but from the road it just looked like an ordinary black chair - which is just what I was hoping for.

I created the design in PicMonkey (for free, of course) then had it cut out on vinyl on my Silhouette die cut machine. If you don't have a silhouette, you could print it on white paper, cut it out and mod podge it to the seat.

Yup, totally lovin' my new front porch chair!  Here's one more look at her before and after.
