DIY Chevron Painted Fabric Chair


Gross stains from attempting to use fabric stain remover.

-Gesso Spray Primer 
-Blank Stencil Sheet
-Sponge Paint Brushes
-Painter's Tape
-Interior/Exterior Paint.  I think any kind would work but I used Valspar Latex Enamel Interior/Exterior in Gloss Black

STEP 1:  I primed the entire chair and legs with Gesso Spray primer and let dry completely.  

STEP 2: Painted the legs with the black paint. 

STEP 3: I made my own stencil (using a ruler and sharpie to be exact) and traced each pattern on the fabric with pencil.

STEP 4:  I started to paint in between the lines but that wasn't working too well as you can see, so I lined each area with painters tape (sorry I forgot to take pictures, it was a long process).

STEP 5: Painted two coats of black paint, letting the paint dry completely between coats AND before removing the painters tape.  I noticed the paint would spread when I removed the tape before the paint was completely dry.

Marble Nails

After watching several Marble Nails tutorials on YouTube I decided I had to attempt this myself.  It does take a little practice but mainly just a lot of patience. I used China Glaze's White on White as my base coast and the other three as the main colors. I don't know if they did this in the 70's but I thought it was appropriate to wear with a 70's costume. Groovy right?

I Love Nail Polish.

Is it possible to have too many nail polishes? 


Now that spring is here I've been sporting my pinks, corals, and nudes.  What will you be wearing this spring?

I can't wait to show you what I'm wearing this weekend for a 70's themed event.  Post soon to come!
