How to Paint a Chair

There’s no denying that I have a slight chair obsession going on. My home counts many – o- chairs, it’s crazy and I seriously have to do something about it. It’s when there’s a party that I can actually save my marriage as I can put all the chairs I horde in the basement to good use.

The chairs we actually use on a daily basis are those by Dille & Kamille as they come in plain wood or ready painted in white. It’s brilliant as we can paint them in any colour we like.

And trust me, my dear Bo doesn’t mind to paint a Dille & Kamille chair at all. As long as I don’t haul anything plastic inside I’m good to go.

We use acrylic paint, round brushes and rollers to paint. Read more about the tools en techniques right here and here.

The chairs I’m most fond of are these two. On the left chair 763 and to the right chair 189. Again, you can find the paint numbers I’ve used in the above mentioned links.

Go check out Dille & Kamille’s tableware and linen, you’ll love it!

    And that’s why your chairs look ever so much more beautiful than ours… ours were lucky if they got a sand before paint being slapped on. They look nice from a distance…

    Beautiful, as always!

    How do you prep a chair that is already painted? I have some green kitchen chairs that need to be a different color.

    Welke kleur heb je gebruikt voor de groene stoel in dit artikel? Ik vind het namelijk niet terug in de “paint guides”. Alvast bedankt! 🙂
