Warm Welcome

I bought this chair at a thrift store and thought it would be perfect as an entry chair, a great place to sit and put on your shoes. Even though the chair was stained, it was made of a different qualities of wood, I wanted to give it an even coat of paint.

I chose to go with a simple color scheme of dark gray with soft beige upholstery. Before I replaced the fabric, I added more cushioning. People often have a welcome sign in their entry way, I wanted this chair to serve this purpose as well. I printed out and transferred the word "Welcome" onto the chair back by rubbing chalk on the back of the printout and then painting on the letters. Now this chair is much less dingy and more inviting.
