$6 Chair Make-Over

About 6 months ago, I came across a great wooden chair at Goodwill.  $6.00=SOLD!  Of course, I bought it in hopes to do something great with it.  And...
It sat....and sat....and sat....and sat....until I finally got around to "doing something great with it."

The $6.00 chair taped and ready to be painted.

I painted the seat and back of the chair with some paint I had on hand.

Next, I printed off a stencil from the web.  There are plenty to choose from and I tried to find my exact one, but couldn't.  I printed it off on paper and then traced it onto card stock.

Once I had my stencil, I traced the pattern on the chair seat.  Then, I carefully taped along the outside of my pencil markings.  *Make sure not to cover the pencil lines so you can paint over them.  

After taping, I painted the pattern.

Then, I carefully removed the tape. *I spot some lone pencil markings.

There you have it!  A $6.00 Goodwill chair turned into something GREAT!
