I'm a sucker for vintage furniture. Nothing gets me more excited than making something old, new and beautiful again. So, when Valspar asked me to come on board for Ace Hardware’s 31 days of color campaign, I happily jumped at the opportunity. For the entire month of March, Valspar is collaborating with Ace Hardware, to unveil a color each day to inspire us all to bring color into our lives. Today, the color is Valspar’s Apricot Froth and my assignment was to find something to give some color to.
I got this chair a while back for like $5 at an antique shop. I am absolutely in love with the lines and I have such a beautiful vision for it in black and white. However, with the recent snowfall around here, I haven't had time to shop for fabric or get this vintage chair to the upholstery shop. In the meantime, it’s such an eye sore and I don't have any room in storage to keep it out of sight. So, this is where paint sure does come to my rescue. The original fabric on it is a dark grey color with small apricot flowers in needlepoint. It's actually really cool. So, in under 10 minutes this chair got an entirely new look with a few coats of pretty Apricot Froth paint. I chose Valspar Optimus because it’s durable and self-priming so all it needed was one coat. AND I love the way its adds color to my living room just in time for Spring.
We've got a bohemian meets French glamour thing happening in our living room and I am in love with it. Painting the bones of a vintage chair was just what the room needed. Now, how can you add color to your home for spring?
